About Make a Difference
Make a Difference WA provides preventative mental health programs to children across Western Australia, with a strong focus on the well-being of young children and the care that they receive from the adults in their lives. The charity was established over 11 years ago by a group of Western Australian business people who wanted to help the children at-risk of falling between the cracks, those who do not receive the help they need.

We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.
