Food Allergy Group WA

Support for Parents of Children with Food Allergies in WA.

Details

Description

The Food Allergy Gorup WA was started by myself because there are very few support gorups for Mums, Parents and Carers that you can access online anytime for information or just someone to talk to that knows what it is like to have a child with Anaphylaxis.

My group is a public Facebook Group, but there is also a Members Only MUMS group called No Nuts Mums Perth Australia on Facebook. 

Most support groups are based in the USA or you have to pay to have access to them - Food Allergy Group is Free - we do have a small store which sells some allergy products which can be helpful to keep your child safe.

The Website has Links, Recipes, Information, a Blog and more.

Path of Hope Foundation

Path of Hope offers assistance and resources to women vulnerable to, or currently experiencing, family violence.

  • Charity:Fundraising,Information & Referral,Local Community,Family
  • Type:Charity

Details

Description

Since its 2012 inception, the Path of Hope Foundation has gained momentum and has become a Major Financial Foundation, Public Ancillary Fund (PuAF) with approved fundraising licenses in all states and territories in Australia. The Path of Hope Foundation is an international project through the Joint Venuture between Rotary and The Salvation Army; two internationally recognised not-for-profit organisations fighting to end domestic violence globally. Rotary International is the fund and volunteer raising arm and The Salvation Army is the operating arm.

Our vision

Our vision is to break the cycle of family and domestic violence by empowering women and enabling them to create positive new pathways. This will lead to women having a greater likelihood of raising their children away from domestic violence enhancing the chance for their children to break the destructive cycle in their lives.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide resources and assistance to women who are vulnerable to, or currently experiencing domestic violence. By providing women with support and guidance, they can become more independent, thereby breaking the cycle of domestic violence. We seek to assist women who are currently experiencing domestic violence by empowering them to take appropriate action and measures to ensure an improved quality of life for themselves and their children.

Refuge at undisclosed location

The Path of Hope Foundation raises funds for The Salvation Army to provide immediate support and refuge for women and their children who are victims of domestic violence. Due to the safety of the women and children the address is not revealed. The Refuge extends support through a unique group of programs and services. It is aimed at assisting with reintegration into society after women have left the Refuge. These services provide an opportunity for women to build networks and connect with the community, thereby breaking the cycle of domestic violence so they, and their children, can have a brighter future and can contribute to the community. Education and role model examples by parents, need to illustrate, from kindergarten level, that violence is not a right of any family member.

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.

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

 

SIDS and Kids WA

SIDS for Kids WA is a community-based organisation and had our beginnings as a mutual support group for bereaved SIDS parents and families during the 1970s.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Family,Fundraising,Mental Health

Details

Description

By 1979 this small self-help group had grown, and the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Foundation was incorporated.

At the same time the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support group WA (SANDS) had formed, and this group offered support to those families who had suffered the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death.

Both groups operated separately for several years, until in 2000 it was recognised that these two very special support organisations could benefit by merging, and so the SIDS Foundation and SANDS became SIDS and Kids WA.

SIDS and Kids WA is funded through the generosity of the Western Australian public. The two main sources of income are Red Nose Day product sales, and tax-deductible donations.

Interested in joining us?

Volunteers

We rely on a large number of volunteers, many of whom are bereaved parents, their families and friends. These volunteers carry out a variety of essential duties including Red Nose Day activities, family support, events, community education and office duties. We encourage you to visit our volunteer page enquire about our volunteering opportunities.

Partners & Supporters

We're grateful for the support of our partners and supporters who help fund our education and bereavement support programs and services and research into stillbirth and sudden infant death syndrome. Why not make a meaningful contribution to our community and become a SIDS and Kids WA partner or supporter?

"You hear laughter walking down the corridor before you see the kids."
