An Andrews Labor Government will establish a $10 million fund to build and upgrade women’s change rooms and facilities at sporting clubs right across Victoria.

“For too long, women’s change rooms have been an afterthought at sports clubs,
forcing women to use male change rooms, car parks, secluded areas and toilets at grounds,”  

“Women and girls who play sport deserve decent facilities and that’s why Labor will help local clubs with an upgrade,”

“Whether it be our star netball players at Berwick Springs Netball Club or the Hampton
Park Youth Girls footy team, our girls deserve to have access to their very own change rooms,”

Ms Graley said the fund would not only provide much needed facilities for local sports clubs but also encourage more women to get involved and play sport.

“Our local netball clubs are crying out for assistance in growing the game and finding adequate facilities to use each week,”

“This fund will ensure these clubs are no longer held back by poor, inadequate or even non-existent facilities,”

“It’s time we made providing our sporting clubs with equal facilities a priority.”

Under Labor’s plan, contributions of up to $100,000 will be made to councils and sporting organisations on a matched-funding basis, via a bidding process, to upgrade clubrooms.
