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.

  • Are you inspired by the "Because of her, we can" NAIDOC 2018 theme? 
Well, because of her (Charmaine, our amazing Aboriginal Consultant - check our IGTV channel in our Insta profile) we had a day yarning at Ashfield Reserve NAIDOC Family Day, in the Deadly Jobs Tent.

Charmaine has been coordinating the inspiring ways in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are a key part of our celebrating people vision.

If you think you too can be a part of our celebrating people mission through employment and volunteering come and yarn with us.

  • Just because you are living in a safe house, it doesn’t squash your dreams.

Take one of the young women at Kira House.

Recently, she (along with two other current residents) got the chance to show Youth Minister Peter Tinley around the place.

Kira House is a six-bed unit in the Swan area. We support young women aged 14-18 years who are 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.

One of the young ladies 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!

Because women in a safe house aren’t without goals, just like everyone else.

The young women baked Minister Tinley a cake and shared some of these goals with him, and their positive experiences at Kira House.

Youth are our future, and these young women have bright ones ahead!
