Foundation for the WA Museum

The WA Museum Foundation is the fundraising partner of the WA Museum

  • Type:DGR 1 Status
  • Charity:Fundraising,Local Community

Details

Description

The foundation for our future

The best structures are built on strong foundations. The Foundation for the WA Museum believes that museums should spark a love of learning in the next generation. They should nurture a fascination with the past, an understanding of the present, and a passion for the future – and inspire us in unexpected ways. Importantly, they should influence and motivate young people to investigate the areas of science, technology, the arts and mathematics in the world around them.

The Foundation for the WA Museum has been committed to securing the future of our state heritage since 1995. Our role is to cultivate and develop relationships with individuals, organisations, and community groups who understand the critical role that museums play in society to create a thriving WA Museum. We assist in delivering engaging community and educational programs, support ground-breaking scientific research and discovery, source funding for exhibitions, and acquire new items for our state collection, beyond the State Government’s funding

A New Museum for WA

Opening in 2020, the highly anticipated New Museum for WA will be a source of pride for the community of Western Australia and a fitting gateway to our extraordinary state.

It will provide the perfect introduction to WA’s landscapes, biodiversity, culture, and geological heritage. This is an important time in our history, signifying a shift in the cultural landscape for the people of WA – and this is only the beginning.

The Discovery Endowment Fund

The Discovery Endowment Fund has been established by the Foundation for the WA Museum to unleash the potential of the New Museum for WA. With a $35M fundraising target, our mission is to help create world-class museum facilities, and to sustain and build on the excitement around the New Museum well beyond 2020. With your help, the Endowment Fund – like those for many of the world’s greatest museums – will provide the secure source of income necessary for our future.

International Skills and Training Institute in Health

The International Skills and Training Institute in Health (ISTIH) is an independent, not- for-profit organisation that co-ordinates the resources needed to deliver sustainable medical skills training and disaster relief within the Indo Pacific region.

  • Type:DGR 1 Status
  • Charity:Education & Training,Emergency Relief,Employment & Training,Local Community,Mental Health

Details

Description

Drawing from a volunteer pool of Western Australian, Australian and internationally-based clinical specialists, ISTIH aims to work in collaboration with local health workers and organisations to develop specialised training programs in medicine, nursing and allied health to suit the needs of communities across our region.

ISTIH was established in 2005 following the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami. Professor Michael Henderson and Professor Bruce Robinson AM recognised a lack of cohesion across Western Australian development aid initiatives within the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, and formed ISTIH to enable a holistic approach in the delivery of WA-based aid services to communities throughout these areas. Most international aid and disaster relief arrive too late to save many victims, as many die within a critical period of 12 to 24 hours of a disaster. ISTIH was developed as an alternative to common reactive aid approaches and embodies a pre-emptive, proactive approach, by which local medics are equipped with the necessary skills to respond to an emergency situation before disaster strikes.

ISTIH uses an outcomes-based ‘train the trainer’ model to achieve this, ensuring we maximize the utility of available resources in order to achieve long term and sustainable outcomes in community healthcare. ISTIH clinical volunteers travel to a region and teach skills training and ‘up-skilling’ courses to local allied health workers and students, with the view that once clinicians have gained such knowledge, they can pass this on to others, and so forth, as part of a continuing chain of impact or ‘ripple effect’.

The Institute’s current engagements include providing ongoing support for the development of emergency medicine in Myanmar (Burma) and Nepal, and maternal and child health in Papua New Guinea. ISTIH also offers an Elective Placement Scholarship to facilitate bilateral exchange between medical students of the University of Western Australia and University of Indonesia. More information about our work can be found via our website.

ISTIH is grateful for the support of our core partners, the Department of Health and Aging of Western Australia and the University of Western Australia (UWA). The Institute’s head office is located at UWA Claremont campus.

Description

Along the way we have seen other needs that we knew had to be addressed and so began our School Breakfast Program, Winter School Uniform program, the School Cooking Facility, Special functions for Seniors, as well as thousands of food parcels delivered each year. The more contact we have with the community, the more we see that there is a greater need for the services we can offer. 

Whilst all of these different programs are meeting the physical needs of many people, the greatest gift that Manna gives is a sense of family - love, care, respect, - a smile and hug. For many we come in contact with, from the children right through to the seniors, a hug that comes free of any expectations we have found to be worth more than gold. A relationship is formed and they become part of the Manna family… for many the only family they have right now that can be trusted to look out for their well being. 

Here at Manna, we love our big family and would love you to join it and part of assisting the homeless, the children and our precious seniors.

Royal Flying Doctor Service

Bringing the finest aeromedical health care to the furthest corners of Australia

  • Type:DGR 1 Status
  • Charity:Emergency Relief,Mental Health

Details

Description

Proudly serving Australians since 1928, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that provides aeromedical emergency and comprehensive healthcare services to people who live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.

The RFDS also delivers critical support to people who live in urban centres by providing transfer of patients between regional and metropolitan hospitals.
To help meet the costs associated with running a 24 hour emergency and comprehensive healthcare service, the RFDS relies on generous contributions from individuals, community groups, business and the corporate sector as well as receiving some funding from the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments.

Jandakot is the official headquarters of the Service in Western Australia, however it also has bases at Derby, Port Hedland, Meekatharra and Kalgoorlie. From these bases, it covers an area one third the size of the whole Australian continent – 2.5 million square kilometres.

It does this with a total of 14 Pilatus PC-12 turbo prop aircraft and 1 Hawker XP2 jet aircraft. The turbo props are ideally configured for our aeromedical transfer work and ideal for landing and taking off from bush airstrips. Each turbo prop can take up to two stretcher patients and a medical crew – and sometimes an additional sitting patient.

The jet, which was purchased with the help of a corporate sponsor, Rio Tinto, the WA Government and other supporters, has been vitally important to the RFDS in such a large State. For critically ill or injured patients, it can cut the travel time in half for those who are the furthest distances from the major hospitals in Perth. The jet can also take up to three stretcher patients and two full critical care teams, so in the case of major motor vehicles accidents in the far north, for example, the Rio Tinto Life Flight jet is able to reach patients quickly and able to transport them to specialist care in Perth in half the time it would normally take in a turbo prop aircraft.

Each year more than 8,000 sick and injured patients are transported, more than 40,000 calls received for medical advice and assistance, and over 2,000 clinics are run at rural and remote sites.

Every day, in many ways the Royal Flying Doctor Service takes the finest care to Australia's furthest corners so that anyone who lives, works or travels in remote and rural Australia can feel confident that they have access to the best health services.

The Choir was started in 2007 by local musician and songwriter, Bernard Carney, on the wings of the successful Choir of Hard Knocks.  Membership then was mainly Big Issue Magazine vendors but today, with over 70 members, the self-proclaimed rough and ready crew is totally inclusive and represents groups of people who are at risk of becoming socially isolated.

St John Of God Foundation

The St John of God Foundation was established in 1994 by the Sisters of St John of God to ensure the Sisters could continue their very important work.
