Regional Support

Nearly a third of people with CF in WA live regionally. Our aim is to bring equitable services and support across the whole of the state.


Our services team can offer a diverse range of services when we come to your community. This can include:

  • School and community education sessions; including early learning centres, schools, community groups, workplaces and extended family
  • Health professional education including hospital staff and GPs
  • Physiotherapy assistance, advice and education
  • Counselling and social work support
  • Networking opportunities and support of members

If you require support in your area, please contact our Services team on services@cfwa.org.au or 08 6224 4100.

Regional Subsidies

  • Regional Travel Subsidy – Individuals attending CF related hospital appointments or admissions can receive between $50-$150 per visit, depending on distance travelled.
  • Sibs & Kids’ Camp Subsidy – Travel subsidy to assist regional children to attend our annual Sibs & Kids’ Camp.

See Financial Support for a full list of available subsidies and to apply.

Ronald McDonald House

Parents of a CF child, who live more than 100kms away, and is admitted to Perth Children’s Hospital, are welcome to stay in the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Accommodation.

The warm and supportive home-away-from-home provides parents and siblings with a comfortable place to stay and peace of mind, knowing they can stay together right near the hospital (unfortunately, the child with CF can not visit the house due to cross-infection risks).
