Richmond Fellowship of Western Australia

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.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Housing & Homeless,Mental Health

Details

Description

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.

Our History

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.

Royal Flying Doctor Service

Bringing the finest aeromedical health care to the furthest corners of Australia

  • Charity:Emergency Relief,Mental Health
  • Type:DGR 1 Status

Details

Description

Proudly serving Australians since 1928, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that provides aeromedical emergency and comprehensive healthcare services to people who live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.

The RFDS also delivers critical support to people who live in urban centres by providing transfer of patients between regional and metropolitan hospitals.
To help meet the costs associated with running a 24 hour emergency and comprehensive healthcare service, the RFDS relies on generous contributions from individuals, community groups, business and the corporate sector as well as receiving some funding from the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments.

Jandakot is the official headquarters of the Service in Western Australia, however it also has bases at Derby, Port Hedland, Meekatharra and Kalgoorlie. From these bases, it covers an area one third the size of the whole Australian continent – 2.5 million square kilometres.

It does this with a total of 14 Pilatus PC-12 turbo prop aircraft and 1 Hawker XP2 jet aircraft. The turbo props are ideally configured for our aeromedical transfer work and ideal for landing and taking off from bush airstrips. Each turbo prop can take up to two stretcher patients and a medical crew – and sometimes an additional sitting patient.

The jet, which was purchased with the help of a corporate sponsor, Rio Tinto, the WA Government and other supporters, has been vitally important to the RFDS in such a large State. For critically ill or injured patients, it can cut the travel time in half for those who are the furthest distances from the major hospitals in Perth. The jet can also take up to three stretcher patients and two full critical care teams, so in the case of major motor vehicles accidents in the far north, for example, the Rio Tinto Life Flight jet is able to reach patients quickly and able to transport them to specialist care in Perth in half the time it would normally take in a turbo prop aircraft.

Each year more than 8,000 sick and injured patients are transported, more than 40,000 calls received for medical advice and assistance, and over 2,000 clinics are run at rural and remote sites.

Every day, in many ways the Royal Flying Doctor Service takes the finest care to Australia's furthest corners so that anyone who lives, works or travels in remote and rural Australia can feel confident that they have access to the best health services. 

SIDS and Kids WA

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.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Family,Fundraising,Mental Health

Details

Description

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?

Volunteers

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.

Partners & Supporters

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. Why not make a meaningful contribution to our community and become a SIDS and Kids WA partner or supporter?

"You hear laughter walking down the corridor before you see the kids."
