Raising Happiness

At Ngala, we believe every child deserves the opportunity to be their best, and that raising children should be a joyful and rewarding experience.

Every child has a different path to take in life and they will have to face challenges, seek out opportunities and triumph over hurdles, as they explore the world around them.

After 130 years of working with families across Western Australia, at Ngala, we continue to use the latest research and training, alongside community stories and experiences to develop and deliver services that meet the needs of today’s parents and children.

From conception to adulthood, Ngala will be there as a steadying hand on the journey you take with your child, every step of the way.
