About Make a Difference WA
Make A Difference WA is a charity that was established over 11 years ago by a group of business men in WA who wanted to help those individuals that fell between the cracks of receiving the help that they needed.
Many WA individuals have been assisted by the charity but in most recent times the charity has now decided to focus on the mental health and well being of young children and the care that they receive from the adults in their lives.
While individual applications are still considered by the charity their main focus is to reach thousands of young West Australians to ensure that they have the skills and strategies necessary for good mental health and well being because the foundation understands that this will have a positive impact on the whole community.
