The Developing Foundation Inc. was founded in 1978 as a support group by families seeking appropriate treatment for a family member with a brain injury or a developmental disability. The organisation is approved as a service provider by Disability Services Queensland. Uniquely, we provide fundraising training and facilitate fundraising programs for our member families who then build networks of support to raise funds for vital therapies, aids and equipment for their loved one.
Development and brain injury support helping children and adults to reach their potential.
The objects for which the Association is established are:
To raise funds to assist people with brain injury
To organise facilities which will assist people with brain injury
To provide support which will enhance the quality of life for people with severe brain injury and their families who care for them in their own homes
To further the knowledge in the medical and therapeutic community about brain development and function with the objective of improving the rehabilitation of people affected by developmental delay and brain injury.
To assist in research into the prevention of developmental delays and subsequent neurological problems.
