Our Charities

WACO has supported many charities since being founded in 2008. In 2016 WACO supported Guide Dogs WA and The Esther Foundation, and in 2017 WACO is supporting beyondblue.

Guide Dogs WA

Guide Dogs enable extraordinary transformation in the lives of people living with blindness and vision impairment. It is the independence and pure joy offered by these dogs to our clients that keeps us going. Owned and operated by VisAbility, Guide Dogs WA relies on the generous support of the community to fund the Guide Dog program. 

We want to see a world where everybody who needs a Guide Dog, has a Guide Dog, and for that reason all of our Guide Dogs are provided free of charge to people who are blind or severely vision impaired.

The Esther Foundation

The Esther Foundation facilitates an extensive and award winning residential young women's health, development and leadership program through ten residential premises based around South Perth, housing more than forty five women and their children. The program is full-time and offers intensive support and assistance to young women in a safe and structured environment. 

The broadly structured program facilitates specific group and individual counselling for issues and concerns faced by young women such as sexual and emotional abuse, domestic violence, mental health and depression.
