Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
The Telethon Kids Institute's research focus is in four main areas - the early environment; brain and behaviour; chronic and severe diseases; and aboriginal health. There are numerous research projects and programs within and between these focus areas as well as many other research projects undertaken at the Institute. In 2015 the Institute celebrated its Silver Anniversary - 25 years of making a difference for children and their families. It also released its latest Impact Report which provides a snapshot of research undertaken at Telethon Kids. This includes Translation - research that has been actively translated into policy or practice; Paradigm Shift - research that changes the way scientists think; In the Pipeline - research that is in the pipeline towards translation; and Collaborating for Impact - research that shows how we work with others to make a difference.Much of our philanthropic funding support is from community fundraising, bequests, philanthropy, major gifts from individuals and corporate partnerships, and in-memorium gifts. Funds raised are sued to support specific research programs, enable the recruitment and retention of key researchers, provide scholarships for students and early/mid career researchers as well as to support research in general.
