Read Write Now has operated in Western Australia for over 40 years. The program trains and supports volunteer tutors to work one-to-one with adults who come from all walks of life and who want to improve their reading and writing skills.
- Some run their own businesses
- Some need additional skills for a promotion
- Some are unemployed
- Some are TAFE students needing help with courses
- Some are parents who want to read to their children, assist with homework or correspond with the school.
There should be no shame attached to problems with literacy, yet many people have suffered humiliation. Read Write Now provides a flexible learning environment where confidentiality is assured.
There are volunteers throughout the metropolitan area and in some regional centres throughout WA. If you would like to be a volunteer in this program or you know someone who would benefit from the assistance offered, call 1800 018 802 or check out the website at www.read-write-now.org

WAM exists to develop the Western Australian contemporary music industry.
Develop - WAM uses this term broadly, encompassing ideas such as “promote”, “sustain”, “protect”, “build” and “improve”.
WAM defines contemporary music as being “music that is currently being written and recorded or written and performed”.
WAM takes as broad a possible view of genres which can be considered to be “contemporary music”. For example Blues, Contemporary Classical, Country, Electronic/ Dance, Experimental, Folk, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Metal, Pop, Rock, Roots, World are all of interest.
In seeking to develop the industry WAM assists in generating an environment where more Western Australians are able to sustain music industry careers.
These careers may include musicians, technicians, managers, promoters, record labels and many others.
WAM’s focus is therefore on seeking to create commercial outcomes for our constituents.
For WAM, this purpose is our “bottom line”, our raison d’etre, towards which all of the efforts of the organisation strive to make a contribution.
