WHAT: 65 Roses Day
WHEN: 26th May, 2017
WHERE: Perth CBD and surrounds and throughout regional WA
WHY: To raise much needed funds for CF research to help find a cure
“65 Roses” sounds like cystic fibrosis. Our “65 Roses” story dates back to 1965, when an observant 4-year-old, hearing the name of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as "65 Roses." Today, “65 Roses” helps us create awareness and make a difference for families in their fight with cystic fibrosis.

The objective of Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA is to reduce the incidence and disabling effects of arthritis, osteoporosis and related conditions in the people of WA.
The Western Australian Arthritis & Rheumatism Foundation (WAARF) was inaugurated in October 1972, as a non-government organisation, through the efforts of Drs Phyllis Goatcher, Evan Owen and Roger Dawkins. Its first home was an office freely offered by the ANZ Bank in Murray St. Its main aims were care, education and research.
In 1991, the organisation's name was updated and changed to its present form. From this modest beginning, the Foundation opened its own custom built Resource Centre in 1994 after a successful Capital Fundraising Appeal, naming the building after Mr Bill Wyllie in appreciation of his significant personal contribution.
In addition to staff offices, the Wyllie Arthritis Centre houses a hydrotherapy pool, gymnasium, seminar and board rooms, café, book shop and leased office space to other tenants. Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA offers a range of support groups and branches which have evolved from the self-help courses conducted over the years. As the population ages, the incidence of arthritis, an umbrella term for over 100 types of disease, is increasing at alarming rates and in 2004 was made the 7th Health Priority by the Federal Government enabling state wide Foundations to benefit by access to government funding.
Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA adheres to the The West Australian Carers Charter.

Commitment to ‘making a difference'
Kidney Health Australia is a not for profit organization whose focus is to improve kidney health outcomes leading to substantial improvements to the quality of life for people with kidney and urinary tract diseases, their families and carers, as well as developing initiatives that reduce the incidence of kidney disease in the Australian community.
Kidney Health Australia has given a long term commitment to families and children affected by kidney disease, but the biggest challenge remains for us to reach those two million Australians who do not know they have early kidney damage.
Fast Facts on CKD
Kidney disease has no warning signs which means that a person can lose up to 90% of their kidney function before they realise they are sick. It is for that reason that kidney disease is referred to as ‘the silent killer'. Kidney Health Australia works tirelessly to make a noise about this 'silent' disease' which claims many lives every day in Australia. Refer to Fast Facts on CKD for statistics.

Meals on Wheels is a name familiar to Australians and is at the heart of many communities. It represents helping hands, teamwork and looking out for each other.
From its inception nearly 60 years ago, Meals on Wheels has grown to become a driving force of care in the community. The delivery of nutritious and affordable meals, together with regular contact and social interaction contributes significantly towards the clients’ wellbeing and independence.
Across Western Australia Meals on Wheels has around 90 Service providers, throughout the Metropolitan, rural and remote regions. Each year in Western Australia close to 930,000 meals are provided to approximately 10,000 clients in their own homes and through dine-in services provided by Community Care Centres.
The majority of clients receiving a Meals on Wheels service are aged between 50 years to 90 plus, however meals on wheels also provides nutritious meals to younger people suffering from disabilities. Every weekday, a whole host of volunteers offer their time to help cook, and prepare, delicious, and healthy 3 course meals which include entrée, main and desert, while keeping in mind the special dietary requirements of many individuals. These meals are then delivered by volunteers directly to each client.
The changing face of Meals on Wheels reflects how the organisation is responding and adapting to the changing face of the community. While the tradition and values of Meals on Wheels remain true to it’s origins, there is a renewed focus on the attributes of a Meals on Wheels service being ‘more than just a meal’. It is the relationship between Meals on Wheels staff and volunteers that assist the client to feel connected and supported by their community, with the trust and rapport built with the client often being a catalyst for linking clients into other services they require to support their goal of remaining in their home. All of these attributes contribute positively to the clients sense of wellness.
