The Chung Wah Association is a service that looks after the interests and welfare of the Chinese community in Western Australia. They promote their culture and deal with any social issues that affect the community. They also provide valuable services to the community such as community and aged care, Mandarin Chinese school, cultural performance, and venue hire.

The Chung Wah Community and Aged Care (CAC) is a not-for-profit organisation under the Chung Wah Association and is dedicated to improving the life quality of individuals from a non-English speaking background in Western Australia. They receive some funding from both Commonwealth and State government and have been giving this service since 1984.
