About Rise

Rise was formed on a cold, wet night on July 12 1983, where 92 people met at the Brown Park Community Centre in Swan View to talk about how they could better support the people in their own community. From this meeting a voluntary and charitable organisation was created, and Rise has been working with communities since.

We provide choices for more than 3000 people from all walks of life including young people at risk, those experiencing mental health challenges, people with a disability, our carers and the elderly.

Together we can create communities that shine
