In 1983, a small group of dedicated volunteers gathered to discuss the support needs of people in the Perth Hills area. These were humble beginnings for what is now known as Rise – Your Community Support Network, originally called Hills Community Support Group. Today, Rise provides support to over 2000 people through a staff and volunteer workforce of over 400 people.

Without the help and support from others, we would not be able to provide the depth of services we do today. Whether it’s giving a bit of your time, or donating to a cause you’re passionate about- your support will make a difference.

We’re often asked “how can I help?’ and the answer is simple. Whether you have time or money to share, there’s always something extra that we could do to make a difference to someone that needs support.

  • Rise Community Network client John Pearce is a man who doesn’t give up. And he certainly doesn’t take no for an answer.
.
Following six months of small turns and tests, John (70) suffered a stroke in June 2014. He was initially told by doctors that he would be bedridden for life.
.
Following rehabilitation and support from Rise Community Network, John has a sunny outlook on life. He is determined to keep pushing the boundaries.
.
"Therapists always asked what I wanted to achieve and I said it was to get out of my chair and walk. They kept telling me my chances were slim. I said don’t tell me I can’t me I can't walk.
.
"I'm down to three tablets a day. I can get my hand straight and it doesn’t hurt. I’m up to 100m of walking with the aid of a stick.
.
"I can just about touch my toes. I’m determined to get my shoes on so I can walk by myself. My favourite saying is ‘if you don’t use it you lose it’." .
What an inspiration! ^CA ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
