Our Proud History

Since its inception Kids West has worked tirelessly to fill the gaps in the funding needed by our hospitals to purchase much needed equipment to help care for our kids as well as to fund vital medical research.

The Kids West team has done this without the need for recognition of any sort.

However, the Kids West story is just too important not to be told as its very existence and the work it has done has saved countless lives.

And so the pages below help to capture some of the key events in Kids West’s proud history and depict a true Australian success story.
