Annual Report

Each year, our Annual Report details our achievements, outcomes and future plans to support the health and wellbeing of country children, families and communities.

We help connect country kids to the vital developmental, behavioural, and mental health services they need to reach their full potential. In FY22, we supported nearly 5,200 children – an increase of 32% from FY21. We also partnered with over 7,500 caregivers, educators and health professionals to provide truly integrated and collaborative wraparound care for our clients.

Our overall focus this year was transforming how we work to ensure we have a high-quality, sustainable business model aligned with our new strategic priorities and organisational values.

The needs of our children and families are at the heart of this transformation, ensuring we are responsive to the unprecedented level of uncertainty and challenges faced by country families and difficulty accessing desperately needed services.

With the support of our steadfast partners, donors and supporters, we are working towards our ultimate ambition: that every country child has access to the developmental services they need to support their early development and enrich their lives.

“Honestly, that first visit to Royal Far West was amazing. We’d been trying for over six years to get a diagnosis and help for Ginny, and after a week in Manly, not only did we have a diagnosis, but we also started to see a way forward and a brighter future for Ginny. It was such a relief to finally have the first piece of the puzzle.”
