Get to know the Royal Far West team members who are going the extra mile to support country kids.
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.
Your journey with us begins with a comprehensive screening and assessment in-community, at Manly or via videolink.
Children can access a care plan, therapy and ongoing support and intervention where needed. We offer support in Manly or via videolink through our Telecare programs.
We offer ongoing therapy, parenting support, care coordination, and capacity building for families and schools via videolink as well as onsite in Manly.

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!
