Janine Wood is co-founder and Chair of No Limits Perth, a not-for-profit that supports vulnerable people in metropolitan Perth and its surrounds.
The organisation provides food and essential items to people doing it tough – including those escaping domestic violence, the homeless, vulnerable families and older people. It also gives care, respect and hope to those seeking help.
No Limits Perth supports 72 other charitable and government organisations. With no ongoing financial support, it’s Janine and her dedicated volunteers who keep it running.
Janine has collaborated with Fortuna Foundation on its Positive Spin mobile laundry van so vulnerable people can clean their clothes. She has also set up Heart of the Street, a mobile service to distribute essential items to homeless people.
Janine was the 2019 Westfield Whitfords Local Hero. Her compassion and kindness have created an inclusive environment, allowing vulnerable people to create friendships and experience a sense of belonging.
