Activ Foundation

Western Australians with disability are able to find employment, a place to live, travel and recreation options, and much more through the State-wide network of Activ.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Disabilities



Activ has a fascinating history firmly based on the twin pillars of family and community.

We were officially formed in 1951 by a group of parents who wanted to give their intellectually disabled children a better life. Until then, children with intellectual disability were institutionalised alongside men and women with mental illness.

The organisation was originally called the Slow Learning Children's Group and dedicated to their cause. Families spent countless hours fundraising and lobbying governments for change.

As awareness flourished, the Group's early inspired farm project grew to embrace homes, transport, schools and sheltered workshops.

Today, we are continuing to grow to meet the changing needs of another generation. While the spirit of the founders is always with us, we have modernised our facilities, introduced new occupations and leisure activities and offer a broader range of services to support the whole-of-life needs of an ageing population.

Our earliest members would be proud to see we are the largest provider of services to people with disability in Western Australia, with more than 100 facilities throughout the State.

Building Better Futures at Point Resolution Child Care

A passion to help children learn and achieve has been the key to success for Point Resolution Child Care in Dalkeith.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Education & Training



A passion to help children learn and achieve has been the key to success for Point Resolution Child Care in Dalkeith.

Starting life as an occasional child care centre 34 years ago, it became a full-time operation in 2012 and has earned an enviable reputation as a family-oriented, play-based child care and early learning centre that provides a safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere.

Operated by the City of Nedlands, the not-for-profit PRCC has been recognised for exceeding National Quality Standards with an educational curriculum that offers a stimulating and inclusive program.

An early childhood educator is on-site Monday to Friday with resources offering creativity, imaginative play and open-ended learning to encourage a mixed-age group of children to gain skills independently.

The early learning program features numeracy and literacy activities aligning with local schools, sensory exploration, self-expression and creative experiences and learning environments that enhance language, cognitive, physical and social skills.

PRCC Coordinator Romaine Ratnawibhushana said the most fulfilling aspect of her job was helping children under six years to grow into responsible, competent learners.

“I have dedicated my professional life to developing our most precious resources,” she said.

“By having patience, creativity and enthusiasm for children and meeting both their needs and the expectations of parents is the rewarding part of my job.

“It’s very gratifying to know the community trusts myself and my staff to give their children the fundamentals that will allow them to grow and progress.”

Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said PRCC was the perfect environment for children to discover their creativity, confidence and love of learning while receiving the best care and attention they need.

“Children aged up to six years are encouraged to develop their social, intellectual, physical and emotional skills through the Early Years Learning Framework – and the centre also offers pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs,” he said.

“Encouraging social and emotional development is important when transitioning into kindergarten and PRCC’s programs help with their focus on preparing children for the demands of school life.

“This includes developing self-help skills, learning classroom routines and introducing early learning concepts.

“PRCC also builds on relationships with local schools to further develop ways of bridging the pathway from early learning to school.”

Enrolments for 2018 are now open – people are invited to tour the centre and learn more about the high-quality curriculum and early learning program on offer. For more details, call 9386 5835 or email [email protected].

Point Resolution Child Care is located at 53 Jutland Parade, Dalkeith (next to the Dalkeith Bowling Club).

  • Type:Government
  • Charity:Environmental,Local Community


  • Government:Local



Applications are now open to participate in the 2018 ClimateClever Initiative! This program started as the Low Carbon Schools Pilot Program (LCSPP) in 2016 and has worked with 15 schools across the Perth Metropolitan area over the last two years. We experienced such fantastic success with participating schools that the program is being launched nationally in 2018 as the ClimateClever Initiative.

This information session will provide you with an overview of the program, benefits of pursuing carbon reduction initiatives and how the ClimateClever Initiative and the innovative ClimateClever apps will help reduce your school's carbon footprint and save you valuable school money in the process.

One school in Perth has saved over $80,000 by pursuing carbon reduction initiatives at their school. Think of where that saved money could go!

Who is it for?

This session is for principals, deputy principals, registrars, business managers, support staff, teaching staff, P&C members and community members/volunteers who want to pursue carbon reduction and efficiency at their school. We encourage anyone involved with a school to come along and learn more.

Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia

This Association is a self-help organisation, holding regular meetings to share information, purchase equipment and fundraise to support research into cystic fibrosis.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Fundraising,Information & Referral



Who are we?
Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia was established in the 1970’s by a group of concerned parents. The Association was a self-help organisation, holding regular meetings to share information, purchase equipment and fundraise to support research into cystic fibrosis.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to contribute to the social, physical and emotional well being of those affected by cystic fibrosis and to assist in the promotion of research.

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



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.

About Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy belongs to a group of genetic neuromuscular conditions where muscles slowly degenerate and weaken. Where muscle would normally rebuild and continue to grow, in neuromuscular conditions once the muscles are damaged they have limited ability to repair. Neuromuscular conditions affect more than 20,000 Australians and we support around 800 families in WA.

Neurofibromatosis Association of WA Inc

To support neurofibromatosis sufferers and their carers by bringing families and individuals together and to promote awareness within the community, particularly amongst medical practitioners.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Information & Referral



Neurofibromatosis (NF) is one of the most common genetic conditions and can affect anyone, regardless of family history, race, gender, or ethnic background.

There are three types of NF, type 1 (NF1),  type 2 (NF2), and the lesser known Schwannomatosis. NF1 affects approximately one out of every 3-4,000 individuals.  NF2 and Schwannomatosis affect one out of every 35-40,000 individuals.

NF is characterized by the growth of benign tumours called neurofibromas. These tumours can grow anywhere in the body where there are nerve cells. This includes nerves just under the surface of the skin, as well as nerves deeper within the body, spinal cord, and/or brain.

In NF1, neurofibromas most commonly grow on the skin or on the nerve to the eye. A tumour which grows on the nerve to the eye is called an optic glioma and, if it grows large enough, can cause problems with vision, including blindness.

In NF2, neurofibromas most commonly grow within the spinal cord or brain. Specifically, the tumours are found on the nerves to the ear, called acoustic neuromas, or the nerves for balance, called vestibular schwannomas. Acoustic neuromas, if large enough, can lead to deafness.
