We work with young people at risk from throughout Western Australia, including young people with a disability, those with drug problems, those with mental health issues, refugee children, Aboriginal young people, children with cancer, those struggling with depression. Basically we work with any young person in need to support them to bring about positive sustainable change in their lives, their families and their community.
Whilst Fairbridge Western Australia Inc., is distinct from the Child Migration and the work associated with Fairbridge Society, today own and operate the heritage listed site on which they operated and continue with the founder’s vision of wanting to provide young people in need with the support to enable them to reach their full potential. Fairbridge Western Australia have brought this vision into 21st century context.
Fairbridge continue to support Old Fairbridgian’s wherever possible and value the contribution by the Old Fairbridgian’s Association, who run the museum within one of the buildings at Fairbridge Village, as well as hold a range of annual events and functions.
Fairbridge Western Australia Inc. has been a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) since 2003. We provide Vocational Education and Training (VET) to students resulting in qualifications or statements of attainment that are recognised and accepted by industry and other educational institutions throughout Australia.
One of our core focuses is to provide opportunities for young people through VET training courses and Alternative Education Courses, lifestyle development programs and education with excellent support services.
