Sport and recreation

Promoting participation and achievement in sport and recreation to support a healthy lifestyle for all Western Australians through physical activity.

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) provides strategic leadership and support for the sport and active recreation industry across Western Australia, through funding and advice to State Sporting Associations, community organisations and local governments.

DLGSC proactively engages with the sector to determine and implement strategic responses to current and emerging issues and to review the department’s programs and services. We work with the industry to support athletes and teams to achieve at all levels, including local, national and international competitions. By building on the existing capabilities of individuals and organisations, we enable them to operate at their best and provide quality opportunities for participation in sport and active recreation.

The department also provides experiential outdoor activities to the Western Australian community through the management of recreation camps. The sport and recreation camps are a successful community service operation delivering quality, affordable, accessible camp experiences in Western Australia.
