Annual Report

Each year we publish our Annual Report detailing our achievements and outcomes as well as sharing our future plans to proudly continue our legacy supporting children and their families in rural and remote communities across Australia.

The past 12 months have provided some of the most challenging times of our generation. Extreme drought, devastating bushfires and a national pandemic have all combined to provide extreme uncertainty and economic and social upheaval. The cumulative effects of these events will be felt for years to come.

Despite these challenges, Royal Far West has continued to deliver on its mission to improve the health and wellbeing of children in rural and remote Australia. Highlights include supporting more than 10,000 beneficiaries over the year, our successful transition during COVID, with 80% of services being delivered via Telecare, the development of a world first bushfire recovery program and a 204% growth in our disability services.
