Help change the life trajectory of country kids like Jack

Providing the right services and support means children with even the most complex developmental conditions can learn, adapt, and live a happy life.


That’s exactly why the Paediatric Developmental Program exists. Our team of multi-disciplinary clinicians collaborate with children, their parents and their school to assess and figure out what’s going on for country kids like Jack.


Health assessment

Your journey with us begins with a comprehensive screening and assessment in-community, at Manly or via videolink.

Health intervention

Children can access a care plan, therapy and ongoing support and intervention where needed. We offer support in Manly or via videolink through our Telecare programs.

Family support

We offer ongoing therapy, parenting support, care coordination, and capacity building for families and schools via videolink as well as onsite in Manly.

Three ways you can help


Every dollar goes to to support country children. We’re funded by a combination of your donations, investments, government grants and corporate partnerships. Anything you give is enormously appreciated. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.  

Get involved


Sausage sizzles, fun runs, marathon bike rides – anyone can help out with a little imagination and inspiration. Find out how you can get involved.

Get involved


Without volunteers, we couldn’t function. Many volunteers are long-term regulars, others offer their skills for a specific event. Even if you only have a few hours to spare, we’d love to have you!
