Description

We are the longest running organisation of our kind in the Southern Hemisphere.


As WA’s main community based GLBT service provider our main focus is on providing essential services to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities, including our peer counselling phone line and social support groups. We also offer a number of training options for the general community, ranging from one-hour personal perspectives talks to half- and full-day workplace training in diverse sexuality and gender. We also have a successful history of running funded projects, often in partnership with other community groups.


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

<p> REmida WA is Perth’s Creative Reuse Centre, a not-for-profit community project that works closely with education to provide a unique, creative and responsible solution to industry waste. Through its workshop and membership programs, REmida aims to inspire the curiousity and creativity of adults & children alike with the infinite possibilities of creative reuse and thus encourage a more thoughtful relationship with waste.</p> <p> <br /> REmida materials consist of the discards, offcuts, remnants and refuse of local industry, materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfill. REmida, meaning ‘King Midas’ in Italian, gives new meaning to these materials and highlights the value & beauty imbedded within them, working effectively to change the way that they are viewed – not as rubbish but as valuable, interesting & beautiful.</p> <p> <br /> The materials collected by REmida are not sold, instead once a school, daycare, artist or family signs up as a member they are given unlimited access to the materials and are able to collect as often they need to, for free. The membership program is designed to encourage regular usage of REmida materials, providing a sustainable environmental solution to a school’s ongoing and often financially exhausting material needs.</p> <p> Workshops at REmida explore how useful and inspirational the materials are, and the endless possibilities they have for reuse through exploration, play and construction. School Workshops are aimed at predominantly primary school aged children with a range of activities that the teacher can choose from. Workshops are also available in festival settings and the REmida Play Experience is an interesting addition to any festival’s family area. REmida also holds its own events, with its annual REmida Day celebration in May, festivities during National Recycling Week in November and an Artist-In-Residence program running throughout the year.</p> <p> <br /> Join REmida as a member, donate your business’ waste materials or help the project by volunteering your time & skills. Please see www.remidawa.com for more details. REmida WA, supporting the development and practice of new sustainable art forms in Western Aus-tralia.</p>
