Royal Far West is Australia’s only national charity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of our nation’s rural and remote children.  

Established in 1924, Royal Far West is one of Australia’s most enduring and respected charities dedicated to connecting kids in rural and remote communities to the care they need.

We support children’s developmental, mental and behavioural health so they can reach their full potential. Where you live should not be a barrier to services nor a cause for disadvantage yet 190,000 children in rural and remote Australia have health and development needs that are not being met.

We offer health, education and disability services for country children and their families at the Centre for Country Kids in Manly, virtually via Telecare, and in local communities.

Early intervention is key to ensuring country children reach their full potential. With your support we can continue to make a significant impact on the lives of rural and remote families. Watch to learn more about our mission and how you can help make a difference.

Three ways you can help


Every dollar goes to to support country children. We’re funded by a combination of your donations, investments, government grants and corporate partnerships. Anything you give is enormously appreciated. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.


Sausage sizzles, fun runs, marathon bike rides – anyone can help out with a little imagination and inspiration. Find out how you can get involved.


Without volunteers, we couldn’t function. Many volunteers are long-term regulars, others offer their skills for a specific event. Even if you only have a few hours to spare, we’d love to have you!
