Around one in twelve children in Australia have a disability and half of these children are profoundly affected in their ability to undertake basic day-to-day activities. Disability not only affects a child’s health but every aspect of their life and experiences.
In the early years of life, children with physical disabilities often struggle to achieve basic development goals such as rolling, sitting, crawling and taking those ever-so-important first steps.
Our vision is that every disabled child in Australia is able to live their life to their full potential.
Our mission is to improve the lives of disabled children through:
- Advancing and developing programs and training to inspire breakthroughs in paediatric care
- Connecting and building support networks and programs for impacted families
- Creating experiences that nourish and fire the human spirit
JTF was established as a charitable organisation in December 2010. During this time, the foundation has raised funds from a variety of sources to actively support health professionals and services working with children with disabilities.
