How we’ve changed
We’ve changed with the times, but our purpose of giving Australia’s country children the help they need has always remained the same.
In the early decades most ailments were physical, from Sandy Blight to Polio, and apart from the wonderful nurses and matrons visiting mothers and babies in their local regions, everyone else came to Manly for treatment, with many children living with us for a couple of years or more.
Today, children living in rural and remote areas of Australia are twice as likely to start school developmentally vulnerable than city kids. There are currently more than 180,000 children in rural, regional and remote Australia unable to access the developmental and mental health services they need, because of where they live.
We continue our history of innovation and evolving to meet the changing needs of country communities through drought, floods, bushfires and COVID-19.
