Rise celebrated all the year’s achievements at our 2018 Annual General Meeting.

At the AGM

Our AGM is a great opportunity to celebrate all things Rise – our staff, our Board, our volunteers, our services and, of course, our members.

We released our new Annual Report, which will be available online soon, and welcomed a newly elected Board member to the Rise family – Charlie Gunningham.

It’s been a busy year!

This year has been another busy one full of growth and positive achievements.

Our wonderful Chair, Alf Lay thanked everyone for their great efforts. He also reminded us that this year Rise has gone through some amazing growth. Highlights include:

  • successfully integrating the former Home Help Local operations into our business
  • incorporating other contracts previously delivered by the City of Kalamunda and Town of Cambridge
  • developing and introducing our new ICT system and
  • coming to terms with the NDIS and the changes it has brought to the way we do business.

The value of diversity

Our CEO Justine Colyer said

Rise staff and the people we support continued to demonstrate to the rest of the community the value of diversity and that we all have fantastic talents and skills that contribute to society. We are so much more than an organisation funded to provide services – we are changing people’s perceptions about what community is.

We love what we do, and we like to think it shows!
