- To lead and promote discussion and debate on significant issues affecting business and public affairs or national and international interest and importance
- To facilitate business networking opportunities for both our members and the business community in general by providing quality functions, events and meetings
The Chamber was founded in 1910, the same year as Australia sent the first High Commissioner of the new nation to the United Kingdom. In over a century since then, the Chamber has established a strong reputation as a body that facilitates business development through a range of networking activities primarily the organisation of events such as corporate lunches, private boardroom functions, and more relaxed cultural and cocktail evenings.
The Chamber has developed to further support bilateral trade by providing opportunities for business people to be informed by and exposed to the ideas of successful leaders. Business relationships are developed at a personal level and the Chamber provides support for this process. These opportunities have complemented the growth and role of the Department for International Trade, Austrade and various Australian State government agencies as well as groups including Scottish Development International.
Trade between Australia and the UK is highly significant to both countries. Two-way trade currently stands at more than $29.1 billion, making this Australia’s fifth largest trading relationship. The UK is the second largest source of total foreign investment in Australia: total investment is valued at $515.5 billion. As of 2016, total Australian investment in the UK was $350.5 billion – making the UK Australia’s second most important foreign investment destination.*
Approximately 1,500 Australian companies are active in the UK, with a large number using the UK as a base for continental Europe. A considerable number of these companies are associated with the Chamber and find its services significant in assisting the development of their business relations in this country. These companies and their executives are valued members and partners of the Chamber, actively involved within its network of influential individuals and organisations.
The Chamber is an independently constituted organisation operating in all states. It has a strong relationship with the United Kingdom through the British High Commissioner and the British Consul-Generals. This provides access to key officials both directly and through Department for International Trade.

The Melville Theatre Company was founded in 1982 and presents community productions of plays and musicals.
- Type:Club,Volunteer,Association,Local Focus
- Local Clubs:Arts,Music
- Arts:Local Clubs,Music,Performing Arts
The Melville Theatre Company was the brainchild of the late David J. Burton who, in 1982, called a meeting for interested people in the community to form a theatre company in the Melville area.
As a result of this meeting the Melville Theatre Company was born. The newly formed company’s first production was the farce, Not Now Darling. With its second production, The Sound of Music, the young company won the Finley Award for the Best Production of the Year in Community Theatre. Since then, actors and directors have consistently featured in the list of awards at the annual State Drama Festival. In recent times, Melville has taken home three more Finley awards for Best Play; one for our 2010 production of The Return, in 2013 for Rabbit Hole and the 2014 production of Twelve Angry Men.
Initially our seasons were performed in the Melville Civic Centre, but since 1987, our venue has been the Roy Edinger Centre, on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra. For many years we shared this venue with a multitude of other users, which created difficulties for all parties, however, in 1998 we were granted sole management by the City of Melville and have thus been able to create a real theatre within the centre, including raked seating, carpeting and a new lighting and sound system.

PFLAG are the parents and friends of gay and lesbian people who are apart of our community, united by the common bond. Someone they love and care for is lesbian or gay.

Homosexuals are not the only ones touched by this discrimination, but also affecting their friends and families. This organisation is about achieving the same rights and opportunities for gay people, to bring understanding and acceptance of diversity to the community.
PlaceScape works closely with communities to support the management and implementation of programs and projects that benefit local people. Our work may include community consultation, support in accessing funding, project planning, using best practice models to inform the design process, advice on gardening, maintenance and sustainability, and more. PlaceScape delivers services through a holistic project management approach.
- Type:Association,Non Government,Local Focus
The idea of PlaceScape was born in 2008 during conversations between directors May Carter and Sabrina Hahn. Both were concerned about areas of Perth where vast tracts of bushland and other green spaces seemed to be disappearing under a sea of roofs and concrete streetscapes.
May had been working on a research project exploring links between resident perceptions of urban green spaces and self-reported health. Substantially better general health, quality of life and community connection was reported by people living near parklands that were valued, useable and provided a diverse range of settings and opportunities for physical activity, relaxation and social interaction.
Sabrina is widely known for her commitment to WA gardening and was concerned about the loss of trees and fewer gardens – in both private and public spaces – and about design of new parks being unsuitable for the WA climate and lifestyle.
May and Sabrina were aware that many people wanted to do something about growing greener places to live, work and play but often don’t know how to go about it. They used their extensive network of contacts to bring together likeminded people to co-direct this venture.
And that’s how PlaceScape was created – from the passion of a small group of people who want to save the world one tree at a time!

World Diabetes Day is an annual event held worldwide on 14th November every year. Light up your front porch or workplace with a blue light to show your support for the 371 million people living with diabetes.
Thursday 14 November celebrates World Diabetes Day (WDD); an annual campaign, held on the same date every year and led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. The theme for this year's WDD is Diabetes Education and Prevention. For more information about the IDF's international campaign, click here, and for merchandise available through the IDF website, click here.
At a local level, you can show your support for your family and friends living with diabetes by lighting your front porch with a blue light on 14 November. (If you don't already have a blue light globe, they are widely available from all good light retailers, and are generally inexpensive). Diabetes WA will be showcasing your efforts to turn Perth blue on their social media pages, so please email your photos to [email protected]
It is critical that the impact diabetes has on the Western Australian community is continually highlighted, and initiatives such as lighting up buildings or your own home are simple but effective ways of drawing attention to diabetes and the fact that tens of thousands of people live with type 1 and type 2 diabetes every day.
Diabetes is our nation’s fastest growing chronic disease and unless action is taken now, it is expected to overtake heart disease and cancer to become the largest cause of disability and premature death in Australia.
Some good news is that type 2 diabetes can be prevented through positive lifestyle changes. In fact, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes can be reduced by up to 60% by maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active and following a healthy eating plan.
Diabetes is a condition that cannot be ignored, but sadly, there are many people within our community that have diabetes without knowing it.
In fact, it is estimated that for every diagnosed case of type 2 diabetes, there is another that goes undiagnosed and untreated. Diagnosis and appropriate management is paramount: research has shown that if people with diabetes can manage their diabetes well, the risks of complications are greatly reduced and may be either prevented or significantly delayed.

YORK ARTS & EVENTS Inc. was established in 2017 to foster community engagement in arts and cultural activities and to run events such as The York Festival.
- Type:Association,Local Focus
- Local Clubs:Arts
- Arts:Local Clubs
We are a membership based, not-for-profit incorporated association, thriving on a community of volunteer involvement and participation.
York Arts & Events Inc is committed to making a positive contribution to our town and to bringing the arts to the local and wider community. We invite established and emerging artists to contribute to its programs and exhibitions.
One of our long term objectives is to establish a Community Arts & Culture Centre, which would offer learning and skills training for all age groups for things not already being offered in York. This could include Printmaking, jewellery, painting, drawing, languages, Noongar culture, exhibitions, perhaps a community garden, courses, workshops and other activities, in addition to hosting arts and cultural events. We would not want to replicate services already being offered in the York community and would love to hear from you if you have some great ideas and suggestions to make.
We see the old Convent School as an ideal building for a Community Arts & Culture Centre. Its location next to Peace Park and the amenities it already has make it particularly suitable for this purpose. Over the next twelve months, we will be working to develop a feasibility study and a plan to fund such a project.
Supporting the establishment of Community Arts & Culture Centre is just one of the many benefits of becoming a member of York Arts & Events Inc. If you’re interested in following and/or being involved in the developing arts space in York and the Avon Valley then please like our Facebook page and watch for updates, events and happenings.
Joining York Arts & Events keeps you in the know about what is happening in the arts community in York, and membership entitles you to discounts on events and workshops that are organised by us. To become a member, simply click here. We would love to have you on board.
