Our Story

We create better futures for women in Western Australia.

Luma is an independent, not-for-profit organisation offering free and low-cost healthcare to women and families in Western Australia. We were established in 1977 as Women’s Health Care House, and our objective has always been to support women by giving them access to high-quality healthcare.

Women deserve to be recognised for who they are, valued for what they bring to the communities they are part of, and supported in ways that allow them to grow and thrive. We make sure every woman leaves us feeling empowered, not just resolved. Our success is her feeling whole. Her household feeling supported. Her achieving more than she thought possible. Because by seeing all of her, we help her see what she is truly capable of.

Our Philosophy

  • Seeing the whole you

    A woman needs support and strength when life is tough. This does not mean she is broken. We approach healthcare in a holistic and integrated way, by seeing the whole woman.
  • Your kind of safe

    We tailor our approach to safety and compassion to each individual, making them feel seen, heard, and understood, because there is no one way for women.
  • Helping women help themselves

    We provide safe and accessible spaces, which creates an environment where women can improve their health and create a healthy community.
