A NEW $150,000 centre in Lautoka will offer specialised counselling and consulting services to women, children, sex workers, youths, inmates, people with disabilities, people living with HIV and other vulnerable groups.

The project is a partnership between NGO Empower Pacific and the Australian Government's Fiji Community Development Program.

Acting Australian High Commissioner Glenn Miles said the centre would enable the provision of appropriate and confidential counselling services to poor, marginalised and vulnerable target populations.

"Civil society organisations are key partners in delivering Australia's aid program, playing a vital role in improving the lives and livelihoods of the poor," he said.

Empower Pacific CEO Patrick Morgam said West communities would now have better access to counselling services.
