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.

  • A truck accident more than a decade ago has led to a fulfilling new career for Owen.

With limited things to do while he was recovering, he thought it might be a good time to help others.

Owen began volunteering at Creative Arts by Rise 11 years ago. That led to part-time work in 2009, before he began full-time in 2012.

Owen’s main role is in the woodwork room. He helps clients design and complete projects. However, that is not all he does.

He describes himself as a jack of all trades. He's the fire warden, safety representative, first aider, maintenance and driver trainer.

  • Did you know that there are more than two genders and two sexes?

Local young people have been learning about sexuality and gender diversity thanks to a great workshop by Youth Educating Peers and YACWA.

Jordi and Darci ran the workshop at Stratton Edge Youth Centre. They did some interactive activities with the young people, giving them the opportunity to learn the difference between sex, sexuality and gender.

  • What better way to start a Monday than with a picture of a kitten!

Our CEO Justine Colyer talked with @rspca_wa last week about the work they do protecting pets in family and domestic violence situations.

This is something close to our hearts as we provide help for young women experiencing these situations through Kira House.
