Foodbank WA welcomes volunteers and regularly has groups of corporate volunteers attend to assist with its vital work.

International Skills and Training Institute in Health

The International Skills and Training Institute in Health (ISTIH) is an independent, not- for-profit organisation that co-ordinates the resources needed to deliver sustainable medical skills training and disaster relief within the Indo Pacific region.

  • Type:DGR 1 Status
  • Charity:Education & Training,Emergency Relief,Employment & Training,Local Community,Mental Health

Details

Description

Drawing from a volunteer pool of Western Australian, Australian and internationally-based clinical specialists, ISTIH aims to work in collaboration with local health workers and organisations to develop specialised training programs in medicine, nursing and allied health to suit the needs of communities across our region.

ISTIH was established in 2005 following the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami. Professor Michael Henderson and Professor Bruce Robinson AM recognised a lack of cohesion across Western Australian development aid initiatives within the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, and formed ISTIH to enable a holistic approach in the delivery of WA-based aid services to communities throughout these areas. Most international aid and disaster relief arrive too late to save many victims, as many die within a critical period of 12 to 24 hours of a disaster. ISTIH was developed as an alternative to common reactive aid approaches and embodies a pre-emptive, proactive approach, by which local medics are equipped with the necessary skills to respond to an emergency situation before disaster strikes.

ISTIH uses an outcomes-based ‘train the trainer’ model to achieve this, ensuring we maximize the utility of available resources in order to achieve long term and sustainable outcomes in community healthcare. ISTIH clinical volunteers travel to a region and teach skills training and ‘up-skilling’ courses to local allied health workers and students, with the view that once clinicians have gained such knowledge, they can pass this on to others, and so forth, as part of a continuing chain of impact or ‘ripple effect’.

The Institute’s current engagements include providing ongoing support for the development of emergency medicine in Myanmar (Burma) and Nepal, and maternal and child health in Papua New Guinea. ISTIH also offers an Elective Placement Scholarship to facilitate bilateral exchange between medical students of the University of Western Australia and University of Indonesia. More information about our work can be found via our website.

ISTIH is grateful for the support of our core partners, the Department of Health and Aging of Western Australia and the University of Western Australia (UWA). The Institute’s head office is located at UWA Claremont campus.

Royal Flying Doctor Service

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

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

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.

About St Patricks Community Support Centre

We are a not-for-profit organisation, providing services for disadvantaged people of the Perth South Metropolitan Area; in particular those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We aim to provide high quality and immediate care for our clients through the delivery of a diverse and holistic range of services which include: emergency relief, housing (crisis and transitional accommodation), meals 365 days a year, a day centre as well as welfare and health services.  We also deliver specialist programs such as education and training, art and music, recreation, youth at risk, rough sleepers and partner with other agencies across the community to achieve our goals.

As previously mentioned, 2012 signals St Patrick’s 40th year of service in the community and throughout this period, we have continually worked to help those who are disadvantaged in Fremantle and the south west metropolitan region of Perth - none of which would have been possible without the ongoing and generous support of the wider community.

Our vision is to continuously improve and expand our services.  As the number of people at risk in our community grows, we are looking to work with the local community leaders to achieve a ‘whole of community’ response to the issues surrounding homelessness.
