Rise supported accommodation for people with a disability

Rise has a number of supported accommodation options for people with a disability.

Supported accommodation

We provide more than just a home for people with a disability – we offer a place to belong.

Rise has accommodation all over Perth. From Waikiki to Ellenbrook, we also have many homes in the Swan area.

Rise General Manager Shaun Mays said the supported accommodation is tailored to each individual.

We are committed to finding the right people for the right houses.

We want to make sure that our homes are harmonious. This gives everyone the best chance to live happy lives and reach their goals.

Our homes are modern, comfortable and well equipped.

Shaun said Rise currently had a few houses searching for people to call them home. Each house lists the ideal age, gender and attributes of the individual. You can find out more about our current supported accommodation options for people with a disability here.

Supported Accommodation

What makes a house a home?

A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.


Supported Accommodation

James and Ciaran  are getting ready for the day. James dreams while listening to Shania Twain. She’s one of his favourite singers and he loves to talk about the Shania concert he and his family attended.

James is so cheeky and fun. He can also be really serious. He is the unofficial boss of this place. He’s a very cheeky monkey (Alex, Support Worker)

Ciaran makes sure the house stays neat and tidy. Everything must be put back in its rightful place. He loves to relax on his swing in the morning sun.

Today, James and Ciaran are supported by Angie and Lovena.

Support Worker

Angie started with Rise in February 2016 and is passionate about supporting the lads.

I enjoy having conversations and building relationships with the clients. Me and James will sit for hours and have conversations about stuff.


Supported Accommodation

Lovena also joined Rise in 2016.

Two of my best mates work here, in this house. It’s the people. You can’t do this job without liking people.

This morning she is listening to Ciaran explain some of his favourite food on his IPad.

Are you or someone you know with a disability looking for a place to call home?

Youth Minister Peter Tinley visit Kira House

Youth Minister Peter Tinley visits Kira House

Youth Minister Peter Tinley took some time to visit Kira House recently and check out our facilities.

Youth Minister visits

Minister Tinley was shown around Kira House by three current residents.

Kira House is a six-bed unit where we support young women aged 14-18 years escaping family and domestic violence.

We give them a safe place to live, we teach life skills and we instil hope. Because these women are so young, and have years ahead of them to achieve their goals.

Youth manager Dawn McAleenan said it was wonderful to see the women share their goals and dreams with the Minister.

They told the minister about their personal experience which has lead them to be at the house.

One young woman told the minister how she didn’t see much of a future for herself before coming to the house but through the support of staff and the encouragement she has had, she now feels like she has a thousand different options and she is looking forward to achieving her dream of finishing school and going to university.

One of the young ladies in the house has dreams of becoming a politician herself.

She got a chance to ask the Minister about his portfolio, and peppered him with questions about the current youth strategy!

Rise Youth

Rise provides a number of services for youth. This includes a youth centre, safe house, transitional centre and helping teenagers to get their driver’s licence. Read more here.

CEO Sleepout raises funds for homeless

Rise CEO Justine Colyer is set to shiver through a cold night to raise funds for the homeless.

The 2017 CEO Sleepout takes place on Thursday 22 June. The event raises money for St Vincent de Paul to assist the homeless.

CEOs from across the country spend a night outside in a sleeping bag on a piece of cardboard.

CEO Sleepout

Ms Colyer has taken part in the CEO Sleepout since it began in WA in 2010. Ms Colyer said the event was a reminder that some people sleep rough through circumstance and not choice.

It takes CEOs away from our comfortable beds and gets us focused on raising funds for St Vinnies. All money raised on the night goes straight to providing services for those who are homeless. Rise clients are able to benefit from some of the services that St Vinnies provides.

Raising funds for homeless

Ms Colyer has a personal fundraising target of $5,000 for the event. Collectively, the event aims to raise $1million.

Where I live I walk past and chat to people who are homeless nearly every day. I find it appalling that in this day and age we still have people and children who are sleeping on the streets and in cars.

This is the only time during the year when I ask friends and colleagues for a donation to charity. You have overwhelmed me with your generosity in the past and I’m asking if you’d consider donating once more.

Ms Colyer said every donation, however small, made a difference and raised awareness of the issue. She also welcomes engagement on social media to promote homelessness.

NPAH’s very beachy Christmas

Rise’s Housing Support team get into the festive spirit!

Earlier this month, Rise’s Housing Support Team treated clients and their loved ones to a social BBQ and “potluck” lunch by the sparkling waters at Mullaloo Beach.

NPAH clients were encouraged to find their own way to Mullaloo with something delicious to share with everyone.

After lunch and a few group photos, the team and clients hit the beach for a splash and some well deserved fun.

rise community network

Co-ordinator Kristi Reinelt said it was a great opportunity to catch up.

Being able to provide a social experience for our clients is really rewarding after a big 2016.

The potluck event was also a chance for clients to meet Rise’s newest staff members – support workers Linda and Keryn.

Support for our clients moving into 2017

Linda and Keryn will be working closely with clients over the next year to help them work on daily living skills and wellness strategies.

They will also be running several support programs including the weekly fishing and swimming groups as well as a new CBD social group.

Welcome to the team!

Rise is pleased to welcome our newest members to the team and looks forward to the experience and knowledge they will bring to NPAH in their new roles.

Teem Treasure people benefit from Rise’s housing assistance

For a number of years Rise has been providing housing management services for clients who receive accommodation support from Teem Treasure in the Perth metropolitan and regional areas of Western Australia.

Through this partnership Teem Treasure have been able to receive safe and secure housing for people with disabilities who are also receiving support, by providing them with a home they can call their own.

We believe ‘life begins with a home’.

Very recently Teem Treasure was able to organise the transfer of the house management to Rise for an indigenous client who lived in Northam so they could remain in their home of choice.

I have always found Rise professional to deal with as they have a good understanding of the client base we support.   At Team Treasure we look forward to our continued professional association with Rise’s housing program for the benefit of the people with disabilities who receive support from us.

Exciting times, as our Cockburn Office construction kicks-off!

Construction 2

Some one having fun with a sledge hammer! Demolition has commenced.

As I am sure you are aware Rise, with the aid of LotteryWest, have purchased new premises in Cockburn.  This office will become a base for Rise services (particularly NDIS-WA) in the surrounding areas as well as offer a base for complementing service providers to operate.  After what seems like a lifetime it’s great to see that work has finally commenced on its construction and fit-out.

We are looking at completing this project in approximately two months,  and in the meantime, I will provide updates of the progress.

Service has already commenced in the area, so if you believe we can assist you, please call Sarah Patterson on 6274 3700.

Rise Annual General Meeting 2015

Rise AGM 2015 (9)

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) Breakfast Celebration was held at Helen’s Place on a Friday, 30 October 2015.

We’ll need a bigger venue next year if attendance at the AGM continues to Rise – it was almost standing room only. While I like to think it was the promise of a compelling speech (!), I suspect it was because people know the AGM team deliver an entertaining event, with great catering, new information and a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues.

L-R: Rise Deputy Chair Alf Lay and Board Chair Dr. Anna Alderson
