In our fast-paced lives, it’s easy to become enmeshed in our own routines and challenges, for life is a complex journey to navigate. However, in the process of tending to our own affairs, we may unintentionally overlook the hardships faced by those around us. As we rush from one obligation to the next, it’s all too common to miss the profound struggles experienced by our most vulnerable.
In the background, amid all the noise and chaos, there are organisations quietly and powerfully making a difference for those most in need. These are the organisations working diligently behind the scenes to uplift and empower the lives of those who face adversity, each with its unique mission and unwavering dedication to creating a better world. And you should know about them.
Mettle Women Inc. (Mettle) is a national gift delivery service that employs women experiencing homelessness due to domestic and family violence. They reinvest 100 per cent of their gift sales profits to equip survivors with the skills, confidence, and financial security needed for employment and stable housing. By choosing Mettle for your gift purchases, you not only show your support for a worthy cause but also help address the pressing issue of domestic violence-induced homelessness among women in Australia.
Domestic and family violence is the single largest driver of homelessness for women in Australia. The lack of safe and accessible employment and opportunities to establish financial independence can make it extremely difficult and perilous to leave abusive environments. Mettle, then, exists to provide these opportunities and prevent women from returning to homelessness or their abuser.
Carers WA is the leading advocate for unpaid family carers in Western Australia. They provide much needed support to parents, siblings, spouses and other household members who support someone in their family with disability, mental or physical health challenges. This non-profit, community-based organisation and registered charity is wholly committed to enhancing the quality of life for the approximately 230,000 family carers residing in Western Australia.
Carers WA offers a range of innovative programs and services aimed at providing practical and emotional support for family carers. Currently, they’re running a campaign called ‘Share For Those Who Care’, encouraging the general public to identify family carers in their network and community to share the free services and support available to them. If you happen to know an unpaid family carer, someone who selflessly provides care and support to a family member or friend with an illness or disability, please consider joining this effort and spreading the word, helping to make a real difference in the lives of those who devote themselves to caring.
If you are, or know of, a woman in an abusive relationship who needs help, Your Toolkit is an important starting point. Your Toolkit was created so women affected by domestic abuse could easily access accurate and practical information that makes them feel supported, informed, and empowered to take action to improve their personal well-being. It’s a free website where women can access all the information they need to know, in the one place, as they navigate their journey to safety and resilience. The information is quick and easy to find and is presented as a step-by-step guide for women wanting to change or leave their situation, from wherever they are in their decision-making journey – including a list of their rights, how to keep safe, how to get whatever help they need, somewhere to stay and how to manage personal financial matters.
As we celebrate these organisations and their unwavering dedication, we should remember that change begins with awareness and action. By supporting these organisations, we can collectively shape a more compassionate, inclusive, and supportive world.
No one’s struggle should go unnoticed. If you would like to learn more about Carers WA and their campaign, ‘Share For Those Who Care’, visit their website for more.
