Sponsor a child
Many children need urgent access to vital therapy services and with your support we can continue to build our Scholarship Program.
For the last 14 years we have been fortunate to give over a hundred scholarships to some of Western Australia’s most developmentally vulnerable children. These children and their families are not eligible for government funding, or they don’t have the adequate funding they need to meet their therapy needs.
Without access to support, these children can fall through the gaps in the system. Their opportunity to reach their potential and flourish is at great risk.
Our Scholarship program provides the opportunity for families who are the most vulnerable to apply to receive the therapy their child so desperately needs.
The program is run entirely through support from our wonderful Corporate Partners and/or Individual Donors.
$2000 can provide a vulnerable child with six months of therapy
$2500 can provide a vulnerable child with six months of therapy with two therapists (for those needing support in multiple areas such as Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy).
$5000 can provide a vulnerable child with 12 months of therapy
Sponsors are given the opportunity to see firsthand what an impact their gift has made. If you sponsor a child, you will be invited to our selection panel to go through the applicants and help select a vulnerable child to receive your gift. You will then receive feedback during the year to hear about their therapy journey.
Thanks to our current and previous Scholarship Partners
Upon hearing of the Kids Are Kids! Scholarships, KEYS jumped at the chance to apply, knowing the difference early, targeted intervention can have on the outcomes for a child. Our successful application allowed a young child to receive timely support to help them to become school-ready, setting them up for a better educational experience and, in turn, enhanced life outcomes. Without the significant and generous Therapy Scholarship Program, this child would not have received this invaluable tailored support due to the prohibitive costs. Kids Are Kids! Therapy Scholarships provide our service with an invaluable opportunity to support our families, and their children, to receive the optimal support they need to thrive.
