About us

Driven by our core values of Respect, Excellence, and Compassion, AWS delivers wellbeing services to the highest standard, with a genuine care for the people we serve.

With over 30 years’ experience working alongside thousands of members of government, corporate and community organisations, our mission is to provide services that manage personal, family and work challenges. We are committed to the development of social capital and capacity building, and inspire creative solutions to issues facing individuals, families, and communities across Australia.

A Western Australian run and operated service offering personalised account management, we have a strong local presence and national reach across Australia. Over 120 service centres and over 1,000 professionals throughout Australia provide you with tailored services to support your people and your business. Wherever you are based, through the ACCESS Network you will receive service of the highest quality that is responsive, accessible and reliable.

As a social enterprise, AWS returns all operating surplus into community welfare initiatives to support Western Australians in metropolitan and regional WA. These community programs assist thousands of individuals and families every year who struggle with homelessness, family and relationship breakdown, financial difficulties, substance misuse and domestic violence.

In addition, we can offer links to specialist counselling programs, including a family dispute resolution, family law counselling, domestic violence services, parent programs, financial counselling, problem gambling counselling, housing support and accommodation services.
