Rise was honoured to be chosen as Landgate’s charity partner as a recent event.

Landgate held a breakfast last week as part of International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations.

Charity partner

The Lands Minister Hon Rita Saffioti was the keynote speaker at the event. It was held at Mandoon Estate in the Swan Valley and was Landgate’s 21st IWD celebration.

Each year the organisations chooses a charity to donate funds. Rise was grateful to be chosen as this year’s recipient.

One of our General Manager’s Helen Dymond kindly accepted the sizeable donation from Landgate CEO Jodi Cant.

Helen spoke to the guests about our youth services and our safe house. Kira House is a dedicated safe house for young women aged 14-18 years who are escaping family or domestic violence. Around 30% of the women we help are pregnant or have children. We are the only type of facility like this in WA who can cater for young women.

We’re so thankful for the donation, and will be sure to put it to good use – we’ll keep you updated!
