After an exhaustive two-year search one of Western Australia’s oldest not-for-profit children and youth service providers has secured over 4000sqm of modern buildings set on 1ha of land in the tranquil Curtin-Bentley Precinct. As leaders in the sector Wanslea is seeking to build on its experience and develop a campus dedicated to improving young lives across the State and beyond.

CEO, Jo Sadler says “This will allow Wanslea to realise our vision of bringing together the best minds in a contemporary, collaborative space, and furthering the body of evidence to ensure children and young people can thrive and become their best versions of themselves.”

This groundbreaking achievement, which will provide a pivotal service for the children of Western Australia.

Expected to open in 2025 the expansive two-building, two-storey facility is now undergoing fitout to create an innovative series of cutting-edge spaces that encourages development of the social, physical and mental wellbeing of children and young people all from a single integrated location. It will be focussed on practical outcomes and becoming a beacon in Western Australia that informs and improves children and youth services into the future through its evidence-based philosophy.

Wanslea welcomes approaches from aligned research & service partners in this space, who may see mutual benefits from being co-located on the Wanslea campus to collaboratively drive even greater outcomes.
