Disabled Children’s Foundation Inc. was established in 1997, and is an independent, non-religious, registered charitable organisation that works to increase community participation of disabled children in Australia.
The Foundation works in partnership with children and their communities to create lasting change by supporting long-term development goals, responding to respite care and promoting social inclusion.
The Foundation supports programs that deliver: modified recreational activities, specialised therapy, education & training support, social contact & inclusion, advocacy support, specialised equipment, and respite care, when families cannot afford it, and when Government assistance is not accessible.
Disabled Children’s Foundation is proudly supported by individuals, and businesses, big and small, throughout Australia. Some choose to support us anonymously while others tell everyone about their commitment to ensuring all disabled children have the same rights and opportunities to participate in the community.
The Foundation receives less than 1% operating budget from government sources, relying heavily upon the generosity of the general public. There are a number of ways that you can help us to raise funds to support our aims including: making a one off or monthly donation, buying a lucky number, or workplace giving, along with including a gift to Disabled Children’s Foundation in your will can be the gift of a lifetime for a disabled child. Gifts in wills, no matter how big or small, can make a huge difference to the work we do.
Our aim is for every disabled child to be able to achieve rehabilitation, confidence, self-determination, and to gain physical and psychological independence.
