  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Financial & Legal,Health

Details

Description

 

Breast Cancer Care WA (formerly Breast Cancer Foundation of WA) has been providing personalised emotional, practical and financial support and care to people affected by breast cancer since 2000.

Receiving no government funding, Breast Cancer Care WA relies on the generosity of the WA community in order to provide its range of services at no charge.

We are staffed by a team of professional women from various backgrounds, who share a common passion for making a difference in the Western Australian community.

What we do

Every person will have a unique experience with breast cancer and Breast Cancer Care WA aims to provide each person with the support that will best suit them.

Breast Cancer Care WA provides a range of services designed to alleviate some of the stresses that may be faced after diagnosis, during treatment and in the long term. Services are also offered to carers and family, who have their own challenges and needs through the experience.

Breast Cancer Care WA also places a strong emphasis on educating the community to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer.

Our services

Breast Cancer Care WA supports families from all over the state and places the highest value on each individual by asking “how can we support you?”

If you or someone you know is affected by a diagnosis of breast cancer and needs some support, please contact us.

Our support services include access to specialist breast care nurses, counselling, specific support groups, financial assistance including; travel and accommodation expenses for country people, help with general household bills and gaps in medical expenses, practical assistance including; transport to and from medical appointments and help with basic living needs during treatment like cleaning, peer support or just being a friendly shoulder in times of need

Thanks to the generosity of the Western Australian community, all of our services are free of charge and tailored to meet the needs of each individual.

Click here to read some examples of how we have been able to help.

Indigenous support and education

Breast Cancer Care WA was the first of its kind to establish services specific to Indigenous women and their families. Our full time program coordinator conducts free breast cancer information workshops throughout WA and works with health organisations in each region to provide emotional, practical and financial support.

Education and awareness

Early detection leads to more effective treatment and can save lives, which is why Breast Cancer Care WA places a strong emphasis on educating the community about breast cancer.

With one in nine women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, educating the community is paramount.

Early detection saves lives, so be breast aware!

Why are we purple?

We chose purple as our corporate colour to set ourselves apart from other breast cancer organisations. So when you’re looking for breast cancer support services – think purple!

How we are funded?

Breast Cancer Care WA receives no recurrent government funding and relies solely on the generosity of the WA community to continue its vital work. Sponsorships and donations are the life source of the assistance we provide to those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are in need of basic support and care.

Importantly, money raised in WA stays in WA.

You may also know Breast Cancer Care WA by its fundraising campaigns;

Long Table Lunch in April, is not just another charity lunch. Established as a celebration of women, this event importantly embraces the opportunity to honour, remember and celebrate the lives of women who have lost their battle with breast cancer. It is also a chance for those who have survived and thrived to celebrate with their family and friends.

Purple Bra Day in June, raises awareness and funds in a light-hearted manner with men and women wearing purple bras on top of their work clothes for a day and receiving sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues for being brave enough to do so.

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).

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.

The National Trust of Australia is a community-based, non-government organisation, committed to promoting and conserving Australia's indigenous, natural and historic heritage

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Aboriginal

Details

Description

The Australian National Trust movement was established in New South Wales in 1945 by Annie Wyatt who, along with a group of other citizens, raised community consciousness of widespread destruction of the built and natural heritage in Sydney.

The National Trust movement quickly spread across Australia with the other States establishing National Trust offices throughout the 1950's and 60's. The Northern and Australian Capital Territories were the last to establish a National Trust in 1976. Each State and Territory National Trust is fully autonomous entity in its own right responsible for managing its own affairs.

Collectively the organisation owns or manages over 300 heritage places (the majority held in perpetuity), manages a volunteer workforce of 7000 while also employing about 350 people nationwide.

The National Trusts are the only conservation organisations in Australia concerned with all aspects of heritage, natural and cultural, tangible and intangible. We are the pre-eminent independent community bodies that promote conservation of and access to Australia’s unique natural, cultural and Indigenous heritage.

We rely heavily on community support generated through membership subscriptions, sponsorship, donations and bequests, property admissions and retail sales. Of the collective total operational revenue generated by the organisation less than 10% is sourced from government

The Kimberley- Like Nowhere Else

A growing community working to protect the Kimberley, one of the last great unspoilt landscapes on Earth.

  • Type:DGR 1 Status
  • Charity:Environmental

Details

Description

The Kimberley is a region of spectacular natural beauty.  Its unique landscapes and wildlife are like nowhere else on earth.  The Kimberley coast is one of the last remaining unspoilt coastlines, and scientific studies have shown it remains one of the most pristine marine areas on Earth.

It is also a region rich in cultural heritage, with Traditional Owners continuing their ancient culture that is tens of thousands of years old.  In the landscape, this long history is evident through the presence of artifacts such as rock art galleries, shell middens and fish traps.

Stretching across an area nearly twice the size of Victoria, the Kimberley is comparable to the Great Barrier Reef, or the Amazon Rainforest, as a large intact area of outstanding natural value. 

Such an incredible region of natural wonder deserves world class conservation. We are working as an alliance to ensure the Kimberley gets the high level of protection it deserves.
