Our Mission / Objective

Purple House is an Aboriginal community controlled non profit health service working in remote Australia. The organisation was started by the community in response to the growing number of Pintupi/Luritja people from the Western Desert of Central Australia being forced to leave their families, country and homes to seek treatment for end-stage renal failure. Our name means ‘making all our families well’ and Purple House is driven by the knowledge that people must be able to stay on country to keep their families and culture strong and have access to high quality, culturally appropriate care.

Our Services

Purple House operates permanent dialysis clinics in 18 remote communities across the NT, WA and SA, as well as a mobile dialysis unit called the Purple Truck. 
We also offer support services, advocacy, well-being activities, health education, primary health care, aged care, National Disability Insurance Scheme services, nutrition programs, volunteer opportunities and Bush Balm, a rapidly growing social enterprise at our home base in Alice Springs.

Our Beneficiaries

Purple House was started by the Pintupi/Luritja people from the Western Desert of Central Australia, but has expanded to support Indigenous communities from different language groups across the Northern Territory and in remote Western Australia and South Australia.

Flexibility and cultural safety is at the centre of everything we do. It’s the ‘Purple House way’.

Projects in Progress

Purple House operates permanent dialysis clinics in 18 remote communities across the NT, WA and SA, as well as a mobile dialysis unit called the Purple Truck. (With a second one to hit the road soon!)

Wills and Bequests

Purple House has been working in some of the vulnerable communities in Australia for two decades, providing health services and social support that helps keep families and culture strong. The call for our support and services only increases each year.

You can make a lasting and profound difference in lives of Indigenous remote communities through a gift in your will. 

General Donations

Your donation contributes directly to getting more Indigenous patients back home to remote communities across the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia for remote dialysis treatment.

Every dollar helps to keep culture strong and families together – it literally changes lives!

You can choose to give a one-off donation or provide ongoing support through a monthly gift.

We are a registered charity so all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Other support

We welcome donations of products and services that benefit our patients and their families. If you’re not sure what might be useful or want to discuss how you’d like to contribute to our work we would love to hear from you!
