Your donation will help country kids like Ellie thrive

Please select a donation amount

You can help connect a country child to life-changing health care.

Access to the right developmental and mental healthcare at the right time, can make the difference between a child thriving or falling behind. ​

​Where you live should never be a barrier to accessing services, nor a cause for disadvantage. ​

But for families in rural and remote communities, the distance, cost and lack of local services often means the care they need is simply out of reach. ​

Your gift today will help set a country child on the path to a brighter future. 

Your impact

By donating today, you will help change a country child’s life, and unlock their full potential.

You have the power to connect a country child to life-changing developmental and mental health care via our team of multi-disciplinary clinicians. They deliver child-focused services and support to country families in person, or remotely via Telecare for Kids.

Your donation will change the trajectory for a country child and set them on the path to a happier, healthier future.

In the last two years 1,192 country children have attended almost 23,000 appointments with our multi-disciplinary team of child-focused clinicians as part of our Paediatric Development Program. Generous supporters like you make it possible for children with complex developmental, behavioural and mental health challenges receive the assessment, diagnosis, services and support they need.
