On the 5th December, the new Umbrella Office in Belmont was finally launched in a true Umbrella style. We would like to thank our client Edward, who have done our Welcome to country. We also would like to thank Cassie Rowe MLA for launching our new building and thank Simon Millman MLA for continuously supporting our organisation. We also had Kim Ellwood , Executive Director of Office of Multicultural Interests present.

Umbrella works very closely with majority of aged care providers in Perth, local government, Federal and State Governments, politicians, public service, community organisations, multicultural clubs, religious representations and private contractors. We were delighted that representatives from these organisations and businesses shared this special day with our Umbrella family.

As our CEO, Anna Harrison said: "We are delighted to have you with us to participate in our official opening of Umbrella Building. Thank you so much for coming. As some of you have travelled long distance to be here, serves as a reminder to us all just how important our work is. Each of you matter so much to us. Today we are delighted to welcome you All."

A special photographic exhibition was also prepared with clients and staff. All photographs were taken by Umbrella staff, amazing photographer and artist Barbara Malinowska, who also does professional photography through her business, called Every Moment of Life.

This week GAC groups, Shalom Adventure, WOTR and Men’s Shed visited Perth Observatory – that is over 150 clients in one week!

Clients enjoyed the experience, learning more about astrology and having a bbq lunch in the scenic surroundings of Bickey.

Special thanks for volunteers from Perth Observatory and our board member Chris for sharing all their fascinating knowledge about the Universe!

"Dear Umbrella,

Just a few short lines to say big thank you. The Sunday celebration for [WE CARE] volunteers was a great success. The effort put in for our morning tea then to oh so delicious biscuits and fruit trays, then the surprise sweets was amazing. I am sure with the variety of food offered at the Bayswater Hotel each person was satisfied. Thank you all for the assistance given to us as we need it. It was another satisfying and successful group outing. As the end of the year is near, I thank you each and every one of you for your time, patience, humour and assistance. Merry Christmas and A Happy and Safe New Year.

Sincerely, Olivia"
