- Health Department of WA, and particularly officers in the Home and Community Care (HACC) program. Their ongoing funding and general assistance has been critical to our success.
- Federal government. We are able to deliver Home Care Packages because of the confidence they showed in the agency.
- Ms Lisa Baker MLA, Member for Maylands has been a stronger supporter of ECHO for a number of years, facilitating several grant opportunities for resources funding for volunteers and client support.
