the green light

SCHF Virtual Giving Event

Thank you for pledging your support to give the green light to three research-led innovation projects that will give kids across Australia the best chance to live their healthiest lives. You can use the form on the right-hand side to make your tax-deductible donation

Project #1: Bringing the joy back to mealtimes for kids who are tube fed with the SUCCEED model of home-based health care.

When it's four o'clock in the morning, feeding clinics are closed, your GP isn’t available and you have a tube-fed child who is in distress, your only option is to go to Emergency. That’s where SUCCEED is changing things! Led by Dr Chris Elliot, this dedicated team of parents, medical specialists and researchers wants to create a world where children with feeding difficulties can thrive.

Project #2: Give Voice! How speech pathologists are giving vulnerable children better life chances.  

It’s difficult to focus on your child’s health if you’re struggling just to survive, so Lauren Hamill has designed a new screening tool to help families at Aboriginal Health Clinics in South east Sydney access vital early intervention care. Twenty per cent of Australian four-year-olds have communication impairments, but in disadvantaged communities this can increase to 50%.Lauren is determined to make sure they don’t miss out on vital care.  

Project #3: Taking the Westmead Feelings Program online to reach out to autistic kids in rural and regional Australia and beyond.

Led by Dr Michelle Wong, the award-winning Westmead Feelings Program is the world’s first evidence-based mental health program designed for autistic children with cognitive disability. At present it can only be delivered by trained facilitators in a clinical setting. The solution? Digitisation of the existing program to offer new training modules for parents to use at home with their children, translated into multiple languages.

Frequently asked questions

How does my donation help?

Providing care, treatment and world-class innovations for sick kids is challenging, complex and expensive.
