Save the Children was first established in Western Australia in 1946.

Our first Western Australian state branch collected 20,000 garments and woollen blankets to help refugee children after World War II. Our focus began to shift to helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with the opening of Allawah Grove kindergarten in 1959 and our first pre-school in 1962.

Today, our programs in Western Australia reflect the breadth and diversity of the state, from the East and West Kimberley, to the Pilbara and Perth metropolitan areas. We are committed to supporting children and young people in some of the most remote and disadvantaged communities across WA. Our work is focused on Early Childhood Development, Youth Engagement and Family support, tackling issues at a community level.

We also continue to run local member branches, op shops and a variety of fundraising events throughout the year.

In 2017, we are celebrating our 70th anniversary in WA with an end of year function, and fundraising events throughout the year including a quiz night, yoga fundraiser, garden party in York and many more.

If you would like to help us celebrate and are keen on holding a fundraiser for Save the Children please contact WA Community Fundraising Manager Sonia Holmes on 08 9267 3900 or email sonia.holmes@savethechildren.org.au.
