Our Major Partners
Surf Life Saving WA
SLSWA's core principle is 'Saving Lives and Building Great Communities'. Not only does SLSWA ensure safety at our beaches; it also helps the community by providing social, recreational and sporting opportunities. Wesfarmers supports SLSWA by sponsoring its Emergency Response Teams which keep our beaches and aquatic environment safe.
Mission Australia helps disadvantaged Australians get back on their feet, giving them the ability to build strong family relationships, gain sustainable employment and avoid homelessness. Wesfarmers supports Mission Australia by sponsoring their Youth Withdrawal and Respite Service, the only such facility directed at young people in Western Australia.

Wesfarmers has been a strong supporter of the Institute since its foundation. Through Wesfarmers’ support the Institute has recently established Australia’s first Professorial Chair in Women’s Cancers.
