On Friday 26 May, hundreds of volunteers and businesses across Western Australia are banding together to sell 13,500 long stemmed roses to raise much needed money to provide care to children and young adults living with CF. The proceeds will also go towards fund world class research right here in WA.

WHAT: 65 Roses Day

WHEN: 26th May, 2017

Activ Foundation

Western Australians with disability are able to find employment, a place to live, travel and recreation options, and much more through the State-wide network of Activ.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Disabilities



Activ has a fascinating history firmly based on the twin pillars of family and community.

We were officially formed in 1951 by a group of parents who wanted to give their intellectually disabled children a better life. Until then, children with intellectual disability were institutionalised alongside men and women with mental illness.

The organisation was originally called the Slow Learning Children's Group and dedicated to their cause. Families spent countless hours fundraising and lobbying governments for change.

As awareness flourished, the Group's early inspired farm project grew to embrace homes, transport, schools and sheltered workshops.

Today, we are continuing to grow to meet the changing needs of another generation. While the spirit of the founders is always with us, we have modernised our facilities, introduced new occupations and leisure activities and offer a broader range of services to support the whole-of-life needs of an ageing population.

Our earliest members would be proud to see we are the largest provider of services to people with disability in Western Australia, with more than 100 facilities throughout the State.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Health


  • Established:2019


The mission of the Ambulance Wish Western Australia is to fulfil the wishes of terminally ill patients who are no longer mobile and unable to travel without medical intervention, equipment and support. Medically trained volunteers and adapted ambulances provide the means to make these last dreams come true.

During a patient’s final weeks or days, it is possible to bring them joy and comfort through visiting a familiar place that reignites precious memories. It is also possible to fulfil something special on their bucket list that can give them a sense of achievement and excitement. Finally, it is possible to gather a family and friends to create one last memory, one last celebration of their loved one.

It’s usually the little things that mean the most to a person nearing the end of their life, but these can seem impossible.

Arthritis & Osteoporosis Western Australia

The objective of Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA is to reduce the incidence and disabling effects of arthritis, osteoporosis and related conditions in the people of WA.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Health



The Western Australian Arthritis & Rheumatism Foundation (WAARF) was inaugurated in October 1972, as a non-government organisation, through the efforts of Drs Phyllis Goatcher, Evan Owen and Roger Dawkins. Its first home was an office freely offered by the ANZ Bank in Murray St. Its main aims were care, education and research.

In 1991, the organisation's name was updated and changed to its present form. From this modest beginning, the Foundation opened its own custom built Resource Centre in 1994 after a successful Capital Fundraising Appeal, naming the building after Mr Bill Wyllie in appreciation of his significant personal contribution.

In addition to staff offices, the Wyllie Arthritis Centre houses a hydrotherapy pool, gymnasium, seminar and board rooms, café, book shop and leased office space to other tenants. Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA offers a range of support groups and branches which have evolved from the self-help courses conducted over the years. As the population ages, the incidence of arthritis, an umbrella term for over 100 types of disease, is increasing at alarming rates and in 2004 was made the 7th Health Priority by the Federal Government enabling state wide Foundations to benefit by access to government funding.

Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA adheres to the The West Australian Carers Charter. 

Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation

This corporation aims to provide a range of services, enterprises and programs that facilitate increased participation in employment and economic opportunities.

  • Charity:Aboriginal
  • Type:Aboriginal,Association



As the Community Development Program provider for the two regions of Hedland and the Western Desert, a large portion of AAC's workforce is focused on achieving this goal. Where real jobs are available, the staff work closely with employers to identify local jobs and  jobseekers to make sure their skills currently meet the needs of employers and follow up with both groups once a jobseeker is employed. AAC staff provide guidance and preparation over induction and ongoing maintenance of the jobseeker in the work role.
Where jobs are less available, AAC supports jobseekers through design and delivery of work-like structured activities that support the development of skills to match jobs when they become available. These activities match community needs so jobseekers can gain a sense of pride from their involvement as well as work skills. AAC also has a number of economic enterprises which can support individual jobseekers. The seeking of economic development is an ongoing focus for AAC as employment opportunities are very limited in many locations.
Participation takes many shapes: as trainees in the workplace, as a jobseeker taking part in a Work Ready program or as a community member who wants to create a healthy and safe community. AAC has a genuine focus on ensuring participation by jobseekers aligns to their interests and also meets the needs of the community.

  • Type:Charity

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.

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;

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.

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.



Breastique Art

Whether you have two breasts, one breast, or both breasts removed, you can make the most incredible art with your body.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Fundraising,Health



About Us

Shiona preparing a canvas….
Let's start off with a story...

In January 2009 I hosted a housewarming party in Stirling, inviting dear friends to bring their energy and love into my new home. Standing in the courtyard was a white canvas that guests were encouraged to paint to remind me of the great night we had.

Throughout the evening, friends offered splashes of colour, shapes, stripes, etc, but a cheeky friend however, caused quite a stir when she said she was going to paint the canvas with her breasts! We looked at her dumbfounded – we're all quite liberal minded, but we don't get our 'assets' out at the drop of a hat, so we watched intently to see how she was going to achieve such a task.

With great gustso, she whipped off her top, plonked some paint on her breasts and then pressed herself up against the canvas. We all held our breath as she peeled herself off to reveal two large circular imprints that looked like to two big happy eyes!

Everyone was impressed by this random act of freedom and creativity,
and it created quite a buzz in for the rest of the evening.

For quite some time after, our close-knit group would talk about how fun and liberating it must have been to paint with breasts rather than a brush, so I made the suggestion that we all get together for a workshop and BYO our own canvas and paints and do some 'breast art.' This was met met with inspired smiles and nodding of heads at this which spurred on my next idea: "How about we sell the breast art we create and give proceeds to a breast cancer charity?" The crew responded with: "YEAH, LET'S DO THAT!" And so Breastique Art was born.

Many of us who brainstormed the Breastique Art concept could relate to breast cancer on a very personal level. We had all known someone who had died from breast cancer or who were receiving treatment for it, and many of us had already experienced the fear and dread of having a breast lump examined.

For me on a personal level, my I felt a real sense of loss when my Aunt Marion died of breast cancer. 'Mazz', as I used to call her, was a vibrant, cheeky lady who always saw the bright side of life. She never cared if she looked silly while enjoying herself, she just wanted to create a fun, dynamic, space wherever she went. Even during her last days, she talked about all the things she was grateful for and continued to focus on the positives in her life.

Breastique Art reveals my Aunt Mazz's attitude toward living by highlighting the fun and creativity of life, not caring about looking silly, but honouring what we've lost while celebrating what we still have.

Our connection to art recognises that art is often unique: no two pieces of art are the same, just like our breasts. Breasts are all different shapes and sizes and we are all magnificent in our uniqueness. 

Building Better Futures at Point Resolution Child Care

A passion to help children learn and achieve has been the key to success for Point Resolution Child Care in Dalkeith.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Education & Training



A passion to help children learn and achieve has been the key to success for Point Resolution Child Care in Dalkeith.

Starting life as an occasional child care centre 34 years ago, it became a full-time operation in 2012 and has earned an enviable reputation as a family-oriented, play-based child care and early learning centre that provides a safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere.

Operated by the City of Nedlands, the not-for-profit PRCC has been recognised for exceeding National Quality Standards with an educational curriculum that offers a stimulating and inclusive program.

An early childhood educator is on-site Monday to Friday with resources offering creativity, imaginative play and open-ended learning to encourage a mixed-age group of children to gain skills independently.

The early learning program features numeracy and literacy activities aligning with local schools, sensory exploration, self-expression and creative experiences and learning environments that enhance language, cognitive, physical and social skills.

PRCC Coordinator Romaine Ratnawibhushana said the most fulfilling aspect of her job was helping children under six years to grow into responsible, competent learners.

“I have dedicated my professional life to developing our most precious resources,” she said.

“By having patience, creativity and enthusiasm for children and meeting both their needs and the expectations of parents is the rewarding part of my job.

“It’s very gratifying to know the community trusts myself and my staff to give their children the fundamentals that will allow them to grow and progress.”

Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said PRCC was the perfect environment for children to discover their creativity, confidence and love of learning while receiving the best care and attention they need.

“Children aged up to six years are encouraged to develop their social, intellectual, physical and emotional skills through the Early Years Learning Framework – and the centre also offers pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs,” he said.

“Encouraging social and emotional development is important when transitioning into kindergarten and PRCC’s programs help with their focus on preparing children for the demands of school life.

“This includes developing self-help skills, learning classroom routines and introducing early learning concepts.

“PRCC also builds on relationships with local schools to further develop ways of bridging the pathway from early learning to school.”

Enrolments for 2018 are now open – people are invited to tour the centre and learn more about the high-quality curriculum and early learning program on offer. For more details, call 9386 5835 or email [email protected].

Point Resolution Child Care is located at 53 Jutland Parade, Dalkeith (next to the Dalkeith Bowling Club).

Cleft Palate and Lip Society of Western Australia

CleftPALS WA is a voluntary support group consisting of parents of children born with a cleft, adults born with a cleft and professionals who care for children born with cleft conditions. Our motto is the 'sharing helps'. We understand the difficulties, heartache and sometimes the shock that comes with having a child with a cleft lip/and or palate and are keen to help you as best we can.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Disabilities,Mental Health




The Cleft Palate and Lip Society (CleftPALS) was established to provide support, reassurance, and knowledge to parents and their families of a child born with a cleft condition. This was the vision when the support group seed was planted. The seed has grown over the years with branches in most states around Australia.

Way back in 1974, the days of flares and free love, CleftPALS was born in NSW. It all started when two friends had babies with a cleft at the same time. The friendship and support that they gleaned from each other was so helpful that they decided to share it with other parents.

In Western Australia it pretty much started the same way as in NSW.

The beginnings of CleftPALS WA harks back to 1971/72 and an orthodontist by the name of Dr William Brogan who suggested to the mum of a cleft-affected child getting all the other parents of cleft-affected children together on a regular basis for moral support and discussion forums.  Flyers were put up at Dr Brogans private rooms and soon there was enough interest to hold the first meeting, held with the kind continuing support of Dr Brogan at his private residence.  Turnout steadily increased to the point where a hall was hired to cater for all the interested people.
However the CleftPALS motto "The Sharing Helps" can be traced back even further to unsung everyday heros like local GP's who were the front-runners to the formalisatisation of such support groups, be it CleftPALS or other similar parent support organisations.  One such example was in the middle of the swinging 60's when a Carlisle GP noted that two of his patients were mums of cleft-affected children (born a few years apart) and only lived a few doors away from each other on the same street.  He recognised the benefit of introducing the mother of the older child to the mother of the 2 month old baby preparing for her child's first repair surgery, as bewildering and stressful today as it was back then!  At the doctors request Judy duly dropped by for a cuppa and a chat armed with pictures of her cleft-affected son, helping put Jessie's mind at ease as to what her and her daughter were about to undergo.  Jessie too saw the value of sharing and demystifying the journey to other mums and hence was one of the initial members of CleftPALS WA "paying it forward".
So, long before "The Sharing Helps" officially became the motto of CleftPALS WA there were people already living by its mantra.

The actual Cleft Palate and Lip Unit was started by Mr Harold McComb (Plastic Surgeon) in the mid 1950’s at Princess Margaret Hospital. Dr William Brogan (Orthodontist) later joined him in the 1960’s.  They were infact channelling our motto “The Sharing Helps” and putting it out there, connecting mums to share and discuss long before the formal creation of CleftPALS WA.

ClimateClever Initiative 2018 - Info Session - Cambridge

Applications are now open to participate in the 2018 ClimateClever Initiative! This program started as the Low Carbon Schools Pilot Program (LCSPP) in 2016 and has worked with 15 schools across the Perth Metropolitan area over the last two years. We experienced such fantastic success with participating schools that the program is being launched nationally in 2018 as the ClimateClever Initiative.

This information session will provide you with an overview of the program, benefits of pursuing carbon reduction initiatives and how the ClimateClever Initiative and the innovative ClimateClever apps will help reduce your school's carbon footprint and save you valuable school money in the process.

One school in Perth has saved over $80,000 by pursuing carbon reduction initiatives at their school. Think of where that saved money could go!

Who is it for?

This session is for principals, deputy principals, registrars, business managers, support staff, teaching staff, P&C members and community members/volunteers who want to pursue carbon reduction and efficiency at their school. We encourage anyone involved with a school to come along and learn more.
