About us

We want every child to have the very best opportunity to enjoy a happy and healthy childhood.  

Based in Perth, Western Australia, our team of almost 600 dedicated researchers and support staff are passionate about discovering causes, cures and treatments for the illnesses and diseases that target our kids and young people.  

With top scientific minds and facilities, a reputation for being at the forefront of global child health research and a track record to prove it, Telethon Kids is world-class.

Yet we know that our work is even stronger when we work together. We are committed to collaboration.

We create and facilitate connections with researchers, clinicians and practitioners, service providers, our partners and the community, to maximise the potential in what we do and deliver tangible benefits to kids and families.
