Showcase Programs

Our showcase programs are a demonstration of how we at the Telethon Kids Institute are committed to a new way of working.

One that's highly collaborative, involves the community, and pledges to deliver real outcomes within a defined period of time.

It's about working across disciplines and with people outside the research sector -- those in policy, practice and the families who care for kids.

Our showcase projects are:
