A New Beginning for Perron Place
Welcome to Perron Place a new community hub in the heart of Victoria Park.
So, what is Perron Place and how did it come about?
VisAbility Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Barnes could see the potential for more community integration within The Perron Centre, the home of VisAbility. Originally opened in 2008, it’s an architecturally designed building with purpose-built facilities for people with disabilities and limited sight.
Elizabeth felt that the beautiful building, with its large, light rooms and wide aisles, should become a facility for the whole community to enjoy.
‘’What’s great about this initiative is that anyone who uses this facility is supporting our services, all the work of VisAbility, Guide Dogs WA and Kites, our children’s therapy service.’’
Elizabeth Barnes, VisAbility Chief Executive Officer
