What is it?

Young people need to know that their tomorrows will be better and Brainchild Foundation have created the Better Tomorrows Program for all young people aged from 0 to 24 years of age who have been diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumour across Australia.
Alongside the government support that is offered through NDIS, the GP plans that may be accessed and the rehabilitation teams that are in place Brainchild Foundation has developed the Better Tomorrows Program to ensure all eligible families are linked to support and no young person falls through the gap.

What does it offer?

If therapy such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or psychological counselling are required we have developed a third-party agreement to cover the gap and ensure the family are not out of pocket. If tuition support is required as your young person returns to school this is also available.

Tuition will always be our cornerstone but adding the therapies strengthens the improvements that each young person may make and provides greater support to the families. The financial aid provided to each family will be the same. Progress and outcomes will be monitored from both the therapist/tutor or family. Case by case assessments will look at adding another package to the famiy, if requested.
