Regional WA

Like their peers living in metropolitan Perth, children and young people living in regional and remote WA make important contributions to their communities.

While they enjoy many benefits of country life, like access to natural areas and a close-knit community, they also face disadvantage in areas such as access to services and availability of transport.

It is important for services and programs to be innovative and flexible to address the disadvantage some of these children and young people experience.
