Western Australia

Save the Children was established in Western Australia in 1946 when we collected 20,000 garments and woollen blankets to help refugee children after World War II.

Fundraising in Western Australia

From the Pilbara to Perth, we're reaching Western Australian children with early education, youth activities and family support.
In 1959, we turned our attention to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island children with the opening of Allawah Grove kindergarten. We then opened our first early education centre in 1962.

Today, our programs in Western Australia reflect the breadth and diversity of the state, from the Kimberley and the Pilbara to Perth. We are committed to supporting children and young people in some of the most remote and disadvantaged communities. We tackle issues at a community level and our work is focused on early childhood development, youth engagement and family support.

Our branches

The Western Australian branches of Save the Children provide us with significant fundraising and volunteer support throughout the year.

From Mahjong and Bridge days, to book sales and cake stalls, our branches work tirelessly to raise vital funds to support Save the Children.

We have eight branches in Western Australia, including regional and metropolitan locations right across the state.

Albany-Stirling Range Branch
Bridgetown Branch
Claremont Branch
Hills Branch
Mandurah Branch
Northern Suburbs Branch
South of the River Branch
University Branch

We also run op shops and host a variety of fundraising events throughout the year.
