Country Women’s Association of WA (CWA) aims to improve the wellbeing of all people, especially those in country areas by promoting courtesy, cooperation, community effort, ethical standards and the wise use of resources. There are CWA branches located throughout both the regional and residential areas including in Victoria Park. 

Western Australian Men’s Shed Association (WAMSA) recognises a men’s shed as any community-based, non-profit, non-commercial organisation that is accessible to all men and whose primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly and welcoming environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace in their own time in the company of other men.  A major objective is to advance the health and wellbeing of their male members and to encourage social inclusion.  Current activities include providing a conduit for enquires and referrals to sheds, creating the WA Men’s Shed newsletter (The Warbler). A list of locations of Men’s Sheds is available on their website.

Volunteering WA makes a difference by connecting thousands of volunteers to many community organisations. It aims to build strong communities through volunteering and provide a range of resources, services and support so that people in Western Australia are aware of, and understand, the nature and scope of volunteer activity.  It links organisations and potential volunteers.
