WA Beneficiary

Wheels for Hope

Wheels for Hope is a program of the Western Australian Motor Industry Foundation, which was established in 2008 by key members of the Automotive Industry in WA.

Wheels for Hope’s primary focus is to assist WA families with disabilities who do not have the benefit of mobility – families who do not have suitable transportation to access critical medical and remedial care, educational opportunities and community events.

Wheels for Hope has a fleet of 60 wheelchair hoist vehicles which are loaned to eligible families, with Wheels for Hope covering the ongoing costs of insurance, registration, servicing and maintenance, with the only expense to the family being fuel – a service unique in Australia.

Management of the Foundation is under the guidance of a volunteer board of directors and the day to day operations are carried out by three part-time staff.

Wheels for Hope has a significant waiting list for people seeking assistance. Funds raised from Celebration of the Motorcar will be used to help Wheels for Hope maintain and grow its fleet and assist more WA families to gain mobility and have a better chance of contributing to, and taking part in community life.

Your support of the Celebration of the Motorcar will help a large number of Western Australian families to get to medical and therapy appointments, attend school and go out as a family.

The recipients of Wheels for Hope loan vehicles are the ultimate beneficiaries of your support and we thank you for helping us to help these families.
