A Blooming Great Cause for Cystic Fibrosis WA

Details

Description

On Friday 26 May, hundreds of volunteers and businesses across Western Australia are banding together to sell 13,500 long stemmed roses to raise much needed money to provide care to children and young adults living with CF. The proceeds will also go towards fund world class research right here in WA.

Roses for 65 Roses Day will be sold by CFWA volunteers at $5 per stem, or $50 for 12 roses.

WHAT: 65 Roses Day

WHEN: 26th May, 2017

WHERE: Perth CBD and surrounds and throughout regional WA

“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.

Mission
Gay and Lesbian Community Services of WA (Inc.) is a non-profit organisation which aims to promote the wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer and other sexuality, sex and gender diverse people in Western Australia.


Brief History
GLCS was established in 1974 as the Homosexual Counselling and Information Service of WA. In 1984 the name was changed to the Gay Counselling Service of WA and the organisation became an incorporated body. In keeping with worldwide trends to recognise the contribution and needs of women in the community, the name of the service was changed in 1990 to the Gay and Lesbian Counselling Service of WA (Inc). In 1999 the name was changed again to the Gay and Lesbian Community Services of WA (Inc) to reflect the wider range of services that GLCS provides. We are the oldest service of our kind in the Southern Hemisphere.


Funding
GLCS receives some funding from the Health Department of WA. While this money is much appreciated and essential, it covers only our basic costs. Our ability to provide our essential services is dependent on the efforts of our volunteers and additional income from financial memberships, donations and fundraising.

Description

M.A.N. the peak body for service providers, organisations and individuals concerned with men’s health, well-being and other issues affecting males of all ages in Western Australia. It is a not-for-profit non-government organisation that receives financial support from the Department of Health.

The primary role that M.A.N. plays is resourcing the sector through supporting service providers, organisations and professionals from various disciplines, who work with males of all ages. In addition, M.A.N. provides information to individuals about appropriate services and professionals, plus provides general community education and raises awareness of the issues affecting males of all ages.

The aim of M.A.N. is to raise awareness of issues impacting on males of all ages and to advocate on their behalf in order to promote their health and well-being in a holistic sense covering physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual components. This is based on the World Health Organisation's 1986 definition of health and encompasses all aspects of a person's life.

In addition M.A.N. refers individuals to the most appropriate services, plus provides general community education and raises awareness of the issues affecting males of all ages.

In 2002, M.A.N. received funding from the Department of Health to investigate the options for establishing and maintaining a viable network for community based men's groups in Western Australia. The rationale for this funding may be found in the government's election commitments contained in the Men's Health Direction Statement.

The service became known as the Noongar Alcohol and Substance Abuse Service Inc (NASAS) and was incorporated in 1989. By 1993 NASAS had purchased an office and program facility base in East Perth from where it conducted counselling, family intervention, community development, education and drug awareness programs and always in the context of “our people’s needs are our major priority”.</p> <p> The Board of Director made the decision to put forward a special resolution to the members in 2015 to consider a name “Wungening Aboriginal Corporation”.  This was endorsed by the Board and members.</p>

YouthFocus

As a unique independent not for profit organisation we offered a range of free mental health services to support vulnerable young people in Western Australia.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Fundraising,Mental Health

Details

Description

Depression and suicide are two tragic issues that touch everyone in our community.

Research indicates that around 1 in 4 young people will have had a depressive disorder by the end of their adolescence and incredibly on average a young person commits suicide almost every week in Western Australia.

These statistics are heartbreaking and they should be considered unacceptable in our society today yet the stigma, a lack of understanding and awareness as well as a chronic lack of resourcing in the sector means that too many young people suffer for too long.

At Youth Focus we are committed to making a difference in the lives of young people who are suffering and those who see no hope on the horizon. As a unique independent not for profit organisation we offered a range of free mental health services to support vulnerable young people in Western Australia.

We operate with a team of highly trained and skilled psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists to provide a range of early intervention and prevention services free of charge, aimed at supporting young people and their families to overcome the issues associated with suicide, depression and self harm.

To find out more about how we can help you or someone you care about please visit the ‘Services’ area on our site or alternatively call us on 6266 4333 to talk about your situation.
