Get Involved

    Donations

    By making a donation, you can contribute to the important work that FWHC does in promoting women's health and wellbeing in our community.

    FWHC is a not-for-profit incorporated association, has health promotion charity status and is a deductible gift recipient. This means that any donations you make to FWHC over $2 are tax deductible.

    Although FWHC receives recurrent funding, this funding has not kept pace with the growth in demand for services. FWHC also generates income through support fees and some fees for service, but these have been kept to a minimum so as not to exclude women from accessing much needed services.

    Donations provide extra money for vital projects and services.

    Volunteers

    There are opportunities at FWHC for volunteers to help with some of its activities, including child minding in the crèche, quarterly mail-outs, grounds maintenance, and fund-raising. But depending on your skills, you may be interested in helping with a health education event or running a group activity.

    Volunteering provides opportunities to:
    • share your skills and experience
    • help others
    • get involved in the community
    • do something worthwhile with spare time
    • meet people and have fun

    Volunteers at FWHC are required to get a Police Clearance and a Working with Children Card if helping in the crèche. FWHC will cover the costs of these. Volunteers will be provided with the appropriate information, training and supervision to do the work required.

    Volunteer Ambassadors

    FWHC ambassadors are volunteers who agree to work with us on specific, mutually agreed projects and who help to raise our profile in the local community. 

    We are currently keen to engage:

    - an Indigenous Ambassador who could assist us to make our services more accessible to Aboriginal and Torres Strait
      Islander women

    If this is of interest to you, contact the Executive Director Diane Snooks to discuss further - director@fwhc.org.au or 9431 0500

    Our Current Youth Ambassador 

    Lucy Harris was engaged as our Youth Ambassador in February 2017.

     

    I am extremely grateful and excited to have the opportunity to take on the FWHC youth ambassador role.  I am currently in my third year of an anatomy and human biology undergraduate degree. I am particularly interested in the areas of nutrition and women’s health, with the hope of becoming a doctor or a nutritionist in the future.

    In undertaking the youth ambassador role, I will be working with the FWHC team to complete projects aimed at promoting the centre to young women in the area, the first of which is a series of posters which will be distributed around the Fremantle area. I strongly believe that the holistic, respectful and caring approach to healthcare that FWHC offers is what young women are looking for, and I hope to make more young women aware of these fantastic services.
