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.

Today we are celebrating Jacob! He's one of our awesome blokes.
.
He loves cars and is supported by Ian, who is also a rev head.
.
The pair have been working together to develop Jacob’s mechanical skills.
.
We wish Jacob all the best in getting a job in the industry. We'd love you to tag and celebrate your favourite mechanic #risecelebratingpeople – we couldn’t get by without them! ^CA

  • Rise just wouldn't be the same without people like our Lorraine. This inspiring lady volunteers five days a week at Creative Arts by Rise in Warwick, and she's been doing it for 22 years.
.
At the aged of 17 Lorraine started volunteering. She assisted a friend care for people with a disability. This sparked a lifetime of giving to others.
.
She began volunteering at Creative Arts by Rise in 1995. The kitchen, pottery and painting rooms have all been lucky to have Lorraine’s help. She is now in the craft room twice a week. Every Monday she goes shopping and she also helps in the kitchen twice a week.
.
In her own words - I’ve always volunteered. I like the friendliness and getting to know people. I’ll keep volunteering as long as I can. Looking at four walls and watching the idiot box all day would drive me insane.
.
Thank you, Lorraine, you've positively impacted the lives of hundreds of people! ^CA
