Events

United Way WA are proud to deliver a range of fundraising, educational and community events as part of our mission of working together to empower and unite communities for positive change.

Unfortunately, with the physical distancing in place over the last few months we have missed our regular UWWA seminars and events. However, with restrictions lifting we plan to end the year with a bang and we can’t wait to see your smiling faces!  

“Thank you – it was great to get insight into the many ways we could give back.. with time.. not just from our pockets.”

We’re celebrating another life-changing year of our unique program ‘Empowered for Employment’, supporting women to rebuild their lives after experiencing Family Domestic Violence. Join us for an evening of food, wine, and inspiring talks, sharing how we can all empower women and make real change in the community, and don’t forget the fabulous raffle prizes!!
