Help to make memories for one of the people we supportBuy a memory book
Students from Helena College completed a 6 week program to make Memory Books for clients in our People with Disability program. During the program, students met with our clients and got to know each other and their interests. The result was 10 wonderful memory books filled with pictures of family, friends, hobbies and favourite things.
The talented students put in a great deal of thought, effort and enthusiasm to create the memory books and for that, Rise and the people we support were extremely grateful.
To present the completed memory books, Helena College hosted an afternoon tea with students and invited the recipients of the memory books along.
Memory books are a great way to help a person with a disability tell their story. Visit our Causes page to find out more about how you can help purchase materials to create these memory books.
The Dorothea Limb Fund is thanks to the generosity of a Rise client of 17 years, Dorothea Limb, who sadly passed away in 2012. Dorothea named Rise as a beneficiary in her estate. The fund helps us to run a program to build resilience of primary carers.
We welcomed BHP Billiton Iron Ore to join us for Corporate Volunteering Day at Kira House, our safe and spacious 24-hour crisis house for young women aged between 14 and 18 years. The house provides a secure environment for the young women and their children who are leaving a violent family or domestic situation to stay safely and receive the support they need.
