RAAFA, one team, one direction, one culture, dedicated to providing services above and beyond.
To provide camaraderie and supportive care while maintaining traditions and heritage for all members of the Division, members and former members of the Australian Defence Force and general community through the provision of facilities and welfare services within Western Australia.
Providing 'Above and Beyond' services since 1929.
On ANZAC Day in 1929, former members of the Australian Flying Corps (AFC), decided to maintain their comradeship and recreate the spirit of solidarity and values they experienced as members of the AFC by establishing an Association which came to Perth, Western Australia in May 1929.
The Australian Flying Corp Association evolved into Royal Australian Air Force Association Inc, an organisation that now includes Divisions in each State and a National Office in Canberra. The Association exists to support Australian Aviation ex-servicemen and women.
RAAFA (WA Division), referred to as RAAFA is a not-for-profit organisation committed to meeting the needs of its members rather than the profit requirements of shareholders. Surplus resources are reinvested in the organisation to provide better facilities and enhanced services for their members.
This philosophy has resulted in RAAFA becoming one of the largest and most trusted retirement living and aged care providers in Western Australia. RAAFA has 6 retirement villages comprising 1420 retirement living units and apartments, 19 assisted living units, 446 residential care places, 14 short stay accommodation units and is home to the Aviation Heritage Museum. We also support our members and veterans through existing welfare services and a range of homecare programs being developed with RAAFA Connect.
Although you must become a member of RAAFA to access these services, membership is unrestricted.
