“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

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.

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