We are excited to announce that we have merged with another non-profit provider, Creative and Therapy Activities (CATA).

CATA has a base in Warwick but works across a number of suburbs and offers creative activities and therapies to people of all abilities in a safe and supportive environment to help them live a more fulfilled and happy life. Services are available to people with Home and Community Care (HACC) funding as well as those paying for services themselves.

CATA will come under the leadership of Helen Dymond in our Aged Care division but their services will also be available to people with disability and people with mental health challenges.

The merger enables us to increase the range of services we offer and expand into new geographical areas. It also enables CATA to continue to deliver its fantastic range of programs and continue as a valuable entity in the community.

Our CEO Justine Colyer said

We believe CATA and Rise will be stronger together as we have complementary strengths and skills which will help us do even more for the community.

There will be more news to come about how we will work with CATA as well as information about a launch event we will be holding in the near future to celebrate this new partnership.

Look out for more details!
