Sunshine Butterflies was founded in 2010 when Leanne Walsh and her husband, Damiens’ journey began with the birth of their son Curtis in 1995, born 13 weeks premature with Cerebral Palsy. Through Leanne’s experience, passion and dedication, the Sunshine Butterflies vision and ethos to provide a better future for people with disabilities began. Leanne created Sunshine Butterflies with a mission to empower families by providing a supportive and inclusive ‘family’ environment while filling the current gaps in the disability support service industry. The charity now enables individuals living with disability and their families to achieve their goals for a happy, fulfilled life through various supports, services and programs. Leanne and the vibrant Sunshine Butterflies team provide a range of innovative and unique programs and services to support individuals and their families every step of the way when living with disability. Sunshine Butterflies social and recreational programs and activities include; music, drama, art, cooking, woodwork, singing and theatre, gardening and environmental activities and animal care which members, their families and friends all love and enjoy. Sunshine Butterflies have given people living with disability a sense of purpose and encourages skills development while creating an incredible sense of community connection.
