Rise Community Network is taking an exciting step forward. A new service hub will be officially opened in the Cockburn area this month.

For many years, Rise Community Network has provided services for aged care, people with disability, mental health and youth in the eastern region.

The opening of the Cockburn hub provides more service coverage across the Perth metro area.

Rise Community Network CEO Justine Colyer said Alderson Place opened on Monday 27th February.

“The opening of Alderson Place is a wonderful step forward in the growth of Rise Community Network,” she said.

“We are delighted to increase our presence in the southern suburbs. We look forward to making a difference in the lives of many people in this region.

Alderson Place is named in recognition of Rise’s former Board Chair, Anna Alderson. She is a person who lived our values. Her passion for community inspired us to name the building after her.
