About Pur­ple House

We began 23 years ago with a knock-out exhi­bi­tion at the Art Gallery of NSW which raised over a mil­lion dol­lars. Peo­ple from the remotest, most beau­ti­ful part of the desert, then used this mon­ey to devel­op their own organ­i­sa­tion, with a cul­ture of car­ing, com­pas­sion and determination.

At the time, the focus was to get fam­i­ly mem­bers home to Kin­tore on dial­y­sis, for peo­ple to be looked after on coun­try and to main­tain the tra­di­tions of look­ing after coun­try and pass­ing on cul­tur­al her­itage to future generations.

It took a lit­tle time…and a lot of hard work…but in 2004, Pur­ple House start­ed dial­y­sis in Kin­tore, the first of its kind, and set a prece­dence for many oth­ers to follow. 

Today we’re proud to say we have col­lab­o­rat­ed, sup­port­ed and helped many com­mu­ni­ties to get their peo­ple home and now oper­ate dial­y­sis in 19 com­mu­ni­ties across NT, SA and WA. We also run two mobile dial­y­sis trucks, pro­vide a range of sup­port ser­vices, run a suc­cess­ful social enter­prise and have big plans for more!

We have come a long way in 23 years!
