Liz Povah

Woodvale Secondary College
__Generous . Reliable . Kind __

As a volunteer with Greyhound Adoptions WA, educator Liz Povah came up with the idea of introducing three greyhounds to Woodvale Secondary College as companion-therapy dogs for socially isolated children. Greyhounds are known for their intelligence and even temper, and the three animals — called Boots, Rush and Archie — have helped reduce anxiety and stress and improve student engagement over the last two years.Liz was also instrumental in developing the school’s wellness centre, where students can visit the dogs during their break and learn about mindfulness, relaxation techniques and the power of positive thinking.

No Limits Perth
__Dedicated . Caring . Gentle __

Janine Wood co-founded No Limits Perth with two police officers to return hope to people through random acts of kindness. A survivor of domestic violence, Janine understands the struggle to make ends meet. The charity redistributes furniture, white goods, linen, toys and food to help people set up a place to live. Janine recruited volunteers to run the charity and saw the demand for its services treble within four years. “Our mission is to give everyone a second chance, without judgment and at no cost, and expecting nothing in return,” she says.
