and this sector is of key importance as WA moves through unprecedented times.
Incorporated in 1956, The Australian Asian Association of WA was initially set up to cater for the needs of students under the Colombo Plan, and is currently one of the longest serving ethnic associations involved in providing Settlement, Aged Care and Youth services for CALD and other newly arrived migrants and refugees. With a main office in East Perth, it functions as an umbrella organisation for many ethnic and welfare organisations, both large and small, from the continents of Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe. A large number of these organisations do not have the means, expertise or capability to communicate effectively without the support and assistance provided by the Association. With current service provision focused on Aged Care and Disability, they have excelled and made massive strides. The premise in East Perth is also office space for a large of our conglomerate groups, including the Consulates of Chile, Nepal and the Philippines. We also operate a branch office in the city of Gosnell’s, Perth’s South East corridor, from where Emergency relief is distributed.
