Lotterywest is proud to be a contributor in building a better WA and working to enhance the quality of life and well-being for all Western Australians.

Each week, we give Western Australians a chance to dream through playing a range of Lottery games where all the proceeds after we have paid prizes to our winners and covered our operating costs are given back to the community. Thousands of community, local government and charitable organisations, as well as sporting organisations, arts and cultural groups and the State’s health services are supported each year.

For information on how the proceeds from our games support the community, visit 'Where the Money Goes'. If you are part of a community or charitable organisation and need some help for your organisation or just want to talk over a great idea, then please call us.

Through a Statewide network of over 500 small businesses who sell our products, we sell a number of different types of Lotto games (Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday Lotto, OZ Lotto and Powerball), Soccer Pools, Super66 and Cash 3 as well as our great range of instant lottery tickets, Scratch’n’Win.

In 2010 we welcomed 77 Division One Lotto winners into the Lotterywest Winners’ Room. As well as the Division One winners, thousands of Western Australians won other prizes in our Lotto and instant lottery games.

Our History
Lotterywest, then known as the Lotteries Commission of Western Australia, was established originally in 1932, at the height of the economic depression of that era to offer state authorised Lottery products which would raise money for hospitals and charitable organisations. The first Lottery draw was held in March 1933. From the proceeds raised, the first grants were made to help WA charitable organisations.

Lotterywest, now operating under the Lotteries Commission Act (1990) continues to have responsibility for running the official State Lottery in Western Australia and for raising and distributing the funds for the beneficiaries in the way in which the Act sets out. We are a State government statutory authority reporting to the Premier of Western Australia as the Minister responsible under the Act.

WA Police Historical Society

The Western Australia Police Historical Society (Inc) was established by serving Police Officers in 1987. With support from Commissioner Brian Bull, our Collection was housed on Police premises until Mr Bull’s retirement in 1994.

  • Local Clubs:Special Interest

Details

  • Government:State

Description

The Western Australia Police Historical Society (Inc) was established by serving Police Officers in 1987. With support from Commissioner Brian Bull, our Collection was housed on Police premises until Mr Bull’s retirement in 1994.

His successor did not support the Society so we were forced to seek other storage facilities and retired Officers were required to fill the void.  The WA Police Union subsequently gave us an office and facilities for storage, in order that we could continue.

In November 2006 we were able to move into the premises at 57 Lincoln Street, Highgate Commissioner O’Callaghan leased the old Highgate Hill Police Station built 1897 and the Police quarters built 1906 (pictured above) to the Society with a 10 year renewable term. The Society has since taken residence in Scarborough, at 174 Scarborough Beach Road. 

In addition we secured a lease with the Water Corporation on their redundant sewage (tower) building, which is adjacent, for a lecture, meeting and work room. All these buildings are Heritage listed.

We established offices and a Museum in the Police quarters and restored the interior of the Police Station and cells to appear as if the Station is still in operation. Our main purpose is to preserve Police history, whether it be with aretfacts, photographs or documents, together with the personal histories of  former Officers. Organised group tours are conducted by appointment.

A quarterly Newsletter consisting of 8 to 12 pages titled The  Peelers Gazette, is produced. This has  a circulation of  170 copies and is produced in hard copy. It covers the activities of the Society as well as a feature article on some aspect of WA Police history.

The Society currently has 103 members, with a nomination fee set at $10.00  plus $10.00 annually. Monthly Meetings take place at 10am, on the first Tuesday of the month, with the exception of November when it is on the 2nd Tuesday. In January we are in recess.

West Australian Football Commission (WAFC)

The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) is the caretaker of football throughout the State and is responsible for the overall development of the game.

  • Local Clubs:Social Club

Details

  • Sports:Football

Description

The WAFC’s role includes ownership of the State’s two AFL teams – the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Football Club, guiding the West Australian Football League (WAFL), overseeing community football, managing umpiring, and driving participation through game development and the talent pathway.

The WAFC is a not for profit sports association. It is incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act and governed by a voluntary Board of Commissioners that oversees the operation of all football activities throughout the State. The WAFC features more than 100 employees spread across the State.

The WAFC plays an important role in funding the ongoing development of football via our affiliates, schools, competitions and academies across all WA communities. This ensures that football is the best resourced sporting code in the State and can have the most active role in building better communities through various development programs.

The rich history of football in the community of Western Australia stretches back to 1885. Today it is the most popular sporting code in the state with 105,000 club participants, of which from Auskick to Seniors, 7% identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.

This results in a significant social benefit and the creation of better communities through the active promotion of the sport and its associated values of teamwork, responsibility, respect, leadership, commitment and community participation.

While many of these benefits have long been the result of our activities, the West Australian Football Commission has both harnessed and harvested those activities delivering these benefits, and used the understanding to develop the most comprehensive community benefits programs in Australia.

The WAFC runs and supports:

  • The WAFL competition
  • The WAFL Colts competition and supporting talent pathway
  • State talent academies for males and females
  • The umpiring talent pathway
  • School competitions and the AFL School Ambassador program
  • Multicultural engagement programs
  • Indigenous engagement programs including the Nicky Winmar and Kirby Bentley carnivals
  • Auskick, junior and youth football
  • All community competitions through our affiliated leagues
  • Tribunals, governance and integrity programs
  • Community facility funding
  • Coaching, umpiring and volunteer accreditation and development
