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.

  • Oooh la lah - look at our clients and staff at the Duxton!

Valet parking and a gourmet lunch were just some of the perks of a round table discussion they attended recently.

But that wasn't the best part of the day.

The best part of the day was our people being heard. 
Their opinions counting. 
The chance to make a difference.

The round table was run by the National NDIS. 
The feedback the participants gave at the workshop will be used to design new protocols for people with psychosocial disability to access NDIS funding.

NDIS made it clear that the feedback would be taken on board and used to roll out a national program.

It's wonderful for our people to be valued and their opinion heard. What a great day out!

  • "It is great having a local program that can help young people with their education. It is especially relevant for the young women who access our safe house and have had to leave their homes." We are so glad to link in with Youth Futures WA  and their Anchor Point program helping young people who are disengaged with education.

Anchor Point is an alternative education program for young people aged 14 and 9 months to 19 years. 
It helps those who are disengaged from school or who have had recent poor attendance.

The program is based at the Town of  Bassendean’s Youth Center. Young people who attend can complete a Certificate I, Certificate II and Certificate III in General Education.

Rise Youth Manager Dawn McAleenan said she was excited about this program and how it could help young women using our safe house.

She thanked Danielle for coming to speak to our team about the program.
