Vincent Connect

Something exciting and new is happening in Vincent! Vincent Connect aims to provide everyone who lives, works and plays in the City of Vincent with the opportunity to find and join welcoming community and recreation clubs and groups.

Who is Vincent Connect for?

If you live, work, or play in the City of Vincent.

  • If you are a part of a club, group or organisation looking to expand your membership to include more members of your community;
  • If you would like to be more connected to your community and looking for the right club, group, or organization to join;
  • If you are feeling socially isolated and would like to know how to identify clubs, groups, and organisations that are welcoming and inclusive; and
  • If you would like to learn more about what it means to be a welcoming and inclusive club, group or organisation, and how to get there.

Vincent Connect might be for you!

What will be happening?

Inclusion WA will be providing opportunities for local clubs and groups to participate in training and mentorship, with the purpose of reaching more members of the community. A particular emphasis will be given to engage those who are socially isolated. Click here to check out the free events coming soon!
