The Radiance Network South West has been gifted $49,592 by organisation 100 Women to provide one-on-one support for 80 mothers and their children facing perinatal mental health issues.

The donation was given out to mark the 10th anniversary of the charity organisation 100 Women and was one of five given out at a charity gala dinner at Hyatt Regency Perth on September 8.

The recipients were shortlisted from a field of more than 120 applications, chosen because of their commitments to helping women across the nation and overseas.

100 Women is a charity organisation set out to “ignite diversity in philanthropy through the power of collective giving to empower women and girls globally”.

100 Women co-founder Alicia Curtis said the organisations chosen to receive the grant provide crucial support and care to women.

“This year, our member voting outcomes were incredibly close which speaks volumes about the quality and critical need of the projects presented to them,” she said.

“These evidence-based programs will be providing safety to women and girls, they will be educating them, improving access to healthcare, and giving opportunities for a brighter future.

“Radiance Network South West is a regional-based business that provides support and care for “the emotional wellbeing of parents and their journey to parenthood.”

Their services include support for those dealing with post-natal depression, still-births/loss of children, Aboriginal and Torres Straight Island support, cultural and linguistic care and help for young mums aged 16-24.
