Help for Perth Homeless Support Group

Members of the Karrinyup Rotary Homeless Working Group and friends recently prepared food and distributed it to the homeless through the Perth Homeless Support Group.

Alta-1 Wellness Day 2022

Alta-1 offers learning pathways to disengaged students across Australia. Children come into the Alta-1 program because they have been damaged by trauma.
