About Royal Far West

Royal Far West (RFW) is an Australian children’s charity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of country children and has been supporting country children and families for almost 100 years. Our mission is to ensure every country child has access to the services they need to support their early development and enrich their lives.
We offer multidisciplinary allied health, mental health, and wellbeing services for children up to 12 years of age living in rural and remote Australia. Our team of 140+ trauma informed, paediatric allied health, medical and service staff support country children with their developmental health needs, including speech and language delays, behavioural and learning difficulties and mental health needs.
Our child-centered, multi-disciplinary services support country kids health and provide hope to communities that face multiple levels of disadvantage and trauma.

Every year we support over 5000 country children with complex needs across four states. Culturally sensitive and community-focused, we work in partnership with schools, the early years sector and communities to support children’s development, wellbeing, and resilience.  

You can help close the gap by donating today so that country children are given life-changing opportunities to unlock their potential to learn, grow and thrive.
