Richmond Fellowship of WA (RFWA) is a non-government organisation in Western Australia that participates in providing a Recovery-promoting environment for people with a diagnosable mental illness.
- Charity:Housing & Homeless,Mental Health
RFWA is well known for programs that integrate the key elements of recovery with accommodation and support services such as recreational activities, guidance on practical living skills and intensive counselling to give participants the confidence and skills they need to recover from mental illness and meet the daily challenges of life outside an institution.
Building on a solid base of accommodation support programs which provide community based housing and skills development support in a non-institutional environment, RFWA is expanding its services to include assistance in employment, training, and consulting for the community and corporate sector.
RFWA is driven by an innovative strategic plan and caring staff that are steadfastly committed to their consumers' recovery, and continually develops its programs so participants receive the very best in recovery services.
RFWA is part of a network of Richmond Fellowship organisations throughout the world. The original Richmond Fellowship was founded in 1959 by Elly Jensen in Richmond, England.
Elly believed that people recovering from a mental illness would benefit from living in a supportive community setting. As a result, she established a community based house for ex-psychiatric hospital consumers that offered both support through skilled counselling and assistance to face the demands of life outside of the hospital/institutional setting.
In 1975, Elly and many members of the West Australian community established The Richmond Fellowship of Western Australia (currently RFWA). Financial assistance was provided by the Commonwealth Government, the Lotteries Commission of WA and a bequest by the late Mrs Ruth Downer. Since then, RFWA has continued to grow and today provides a range of support services to people in various residential settings throughout the Perth metropolitan area and south west.
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.
- Charity:Family,Fundraising,Mental Health
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?
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.

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.
