Thank you for being part of our community that supports people from all walks of life. It has never been more important to come together to address ageing, disability, homelessness and mental health issues.
There have been so many inspiring stories, throughout the year, showing what can be achieved when people are given opportunities to shine. We've shared some of these in our Celebrating People Book here.
The messages we've received below, show just how important these services are:
"I cannot even begin to thank you enough for all you have done for us over the years. It has kept me sane and helped Lindsay and me to live together in peace and harmony and helped Lindsay to have so much more social connection and experience with different activities. There is no value I can put on that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

“If I had to recommend to any young mum where to go, I’d recommend Kira House - they’re a good influence. They’ve helped me out a lot and you need good influences, especially when times are tough.”

"How absolutely magnificent the Rise team have been. My mother was the client. However, the Rise staff supported my mother, me and the other wonderful carer in our group. The ladies who I had dealings with were unbelievably supportive and became so much more than people who were paid to appear. They very quickly became very close friends. Amazing! We also used the respite care centre. The staff there were also unbelievable in their care and understanding. I cannot speak highly enough about Rise services."
Together we can create communities that shine.
