Here at Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, we believe that all children deserve a chance.
To live their healthiest and happiest lives. To be able to play and laugh with their siblings and friends. To feel safe and well cared for. To grow up and be whatever they choose to be.
This belief drives all that we do.
We are the main fundraising body for Princess Margaret Hospital and the soon to open Perth Children’s Hospital as well as the wider Child & Adolescent Health Service in Western Australia. We also work hard to promote healthy lifestyle messages to support parents in keeping their children well.
In preparation for the opening of Perth Children’s Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) Foundation changed to Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation in August 2016. Prior to this, we were known as PMH Foundation since establishment in 1998.
