  • Type:Association,International Focus

Details

  • Established:1910

Description

Our key objectives are:

  • To promote, foster and further trade, investment, commerce and industry between Australia and the United Kingdom
  • 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.

Colosoul Group Inc.

A media group for young adults to gain experience needed for a career in arts and media.

  • Type:Association

Details

  • Arts:Music,Youth

Description

The Colosoul Group Inc. begun in 2005 as a response to the growing need for hands on youth participation within the arts and media industry. With the difficulty of attaining the right skills due to the lack of mentorship available Colosoul opened its doors to youths from the ages of 13-25 years old. Colosoul over the years has helped hundreds of youths to find a pathway that best suits the individual giving them guidance, encouraging self confidence and empowering them.

L.I.C.K (Learn.Innovate.Colosoul.Kickstart)

For 18-25 year olds who are wanting to build up their portfolios and expand their skills development through hands-on practical experience and is especially designed for those 18-25 year olds who are looking at studies, currently studying, or who have graduated. It is a known fact that it can be almost impossible to get a job in the area that you have studied if you do not have the necessary experience required. As a young person tries to find a job in their chosen field of study realises that opportunities are extremely limited due to their extremely limited experience, they experience a lot of distress, low self-esteem and depression. The L.I.C.K. program is designed to give the mentee as much practical hands-on experience in their chosen field to greatly increase their skills, and therefore, their chances of future employment.

G.A.P - Got Absolute Potential

For 13-17 year olds who don’t cope within the normal education system and are needing one-on-one mentoring. This guidance and support is designed to help them decide what they might like to do and gives them the opportunity to explore their creativity in a positive environment. The GAP Program is a hands-on, intensive mentoring program targeted at youths between the ages of 13 and 18 who are struggling with the normal schooling system. This may be due to their learning style, i.e. being kinaesthetic-tactile learners (those who learn through activity), rather than auditory/visual learners, or disengagement from the community. GAP’s aim is to give these young people a positive, constructive and creative environment in which to find their passion and direction, re-engage with the community, and learn in a style/at a pace which they find easy to cope with. Participants in the GAP Program have the opportunity to receive mentoring in a wide range of creative industries, including fashion design, fashion, hair & make-up styling, graphic design, photography, creative writing, retail, reception/HR, art curating, music production, film production, events management, and small-business management. Each participant is assigned a mentor, a member of the Colosoul Group team who will guide and support them in achieving their goals, and discuss with them what they are interested in and feel comfortable with and set tasks/deadlines accordingly. Regular workshops are held, and there is also the opportunity to attain a nationally recognised diplomas through our educational provider ACAS, or a certificate of recognition. By participating in GAP, are able to build up their portfolio in creative industries which it may otherwise be difficult to gain professional experience in.

Moordijti Program

A sub program of G.A.P focused on empowerment of Indigenous Youth and reconciliation. The program is tailored for each individual and facilitated by the embracement of the Whadjuk Nyoongar culture and language. Colosoul has a strong focus on the empowerment of Indigenous young people and reconciliation within Colosoul’s GAP Mentorship Program. Services are provided on a case-by-case basis and are tailored to individual needs. Colosoul’s GAP Program is facilitated by the embracement of the Whadjuk Nyoongar culture and language. All participants are taught to speak Whadjuk Nyoongar, and cultural workshops will be held. This provides the cultural safety essential to the success of Indigenous participants, and also enlightens and broadens the horizons of the non-Indigenous participants.

Melville Theatre Company

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

Details

  • Established:1982
  • Arts:Local Clubs,Music,Performing Arts

Description

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.

World Diabetes Day

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.

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.

Prevention
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.

Early detection
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.
