“Today, more than ever, we need to work together to ensure our most vulnerable community members are supported.”

A message from our CEO, Tony Hume

A message from our CEO, Tony Hume

United Ways throughout Australia and the world are being called upon to provide leadership and support to the community.  Over the past few years there has been dramatic change in how our community is organising itself to deal with social issues largely because social problems in cities such as Perth have become more complex.

These complex problems require a systematic and collective response.  Collaboration has become the strategy of necessity at the community level where responsibility primary now lies for improving social conditions.


Join United Way WA through funding our Community Impact funding model to experience a measurable and engaging outcome.

In Western Australia, United Way WA began some 20 years ago. Concerned with the increasing need in the community and subsequent increasing charitable requests, a group of Perth businessmen established United Way West Australia Inc in 1986. It ran a 12-month pilot program then commenced full operations in July 1988. Find out more…
