We are a vibrant, welcoming group of more than 100 women of all disciplines and ages, meeting to hear monthly guest speakers, and in 20+ special interest groups to share activities, friendship and fun.

 

Membership is open to all who identify as women and who share our vision.

The C.A.R.E Crew

Your C.A.R.E. Crew (Compassion, Assistance, Response and Empathy) is comprised of 6 CFUW members who are here to help!

They established themselves two and a half years ago to serve the immediate needs of CFUW Perth & District women who find themselves in need of short-term assistance (meals, a ride to medical treatments, companionship, a hospital visit) due to illness, the death of a spouse or child, an accident, or another personal crisis.

 

An initial phone call ensures they want or need support, and helps clarify the need. We send get well cards, in the case of recovery from illness or treatment for cancer, for example, and Sympathy cards when appropriate.

Members are asked to let the C.A.R.E. Crew know of anyone in the club experiencing a difficulty, illness or a death and who may need immediate help. We do not provide hands-on care, but can refer to Community Support agencies in the area who may be able to help, like the Civitan Club for medical devices (walkers, wheelchairs).

 

Find out who we are here. We are here for our valued members, so please reach out if you need us.
