Approved healthcare professionals can contact us to request free practical and emotional support for sick children in need, and their families. TLC for Kids is committed to responding to all requests immediately, actioning them within 24 - 48 hours, if not within the hour.
Giving Tuesday
Tuesday December 1st

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate generosity. It culminates with a global day of giving on December 1, 2015, which for TLC for Kids marks the launch of our Season of Giving.

The Season of Giving
Dec - Jan and Beyond

The Christmas period is a time of reflection, community, and generosity. We encourage people to do what they can to give the gift of a smile to sick kids and families this December and beyond. Please get involved!

Tracky Dack Day
All of May 2016

‘Dack Up and Donate’ to help sick kids. Kids in hospital wear trackies to transform their mood, so Tracky Dack Day encourages Aussies to do the same to raise funds for those children who need it most.

Marawalk 2016

The Marawalk is a 42km (marathon distance) walk to help TLC for Kids raise funds and reach even more sick kids in hospitals all over Australia. Shorter distances are also available. Registrations open soon.

We need your help

No child should fall through the gaps

Tragically, there are many children who – by sheer misfortune – miss out on the help they so desperately need as they don’t qualify for existing support services. TLC for Kids focuses significant attention on catching those children who fall through the gaps, including sufferers of accidents, burns, abuse, and rare illnesses. With rapid turnaround and no restrictive criteria, TLC for Kids strives to ensure that no child misses out.
