Our Story

Funders & Supporters

We rely on the generosity of others to help us provide our services to children with learning difficulties, learning disabilities and learning support needs and their families. This generosity comes from many different groups in the community including government, trusts and foundations, clubs, companies and individuals. Thank you to the organisations listed below for donating to Learning Links over the past year.

Learning Links could not operate without the support and generosity of its many funders, donors, volunteers and partners. This support enables our vital programs and services to be delivered to children who have difficulty learning and their families.

Our supporters help fund many programs including:

Disadvantaged Children’s Education Fund: This fund helps financially disadvantaged children who struggle to learn to get the help they need to reach their full potential. It provides these children with financial assistance to access the programs they need including literacy and numeracy support, speech therapy, occupational therapy, early childhood intervention and/or targeted behavioural interventions.

Reading for Life:  A reading program designed to give one-on-one assistance to children who are struggling in the classroom environment. Volunteers or parents are trained to deliver the program to children to improve their reading and self esteem.

Workshops Learning Links’ workshops program provides high quality training for parents and professionals. They receive practical hands-on training that reflects expert knowledge and industry standards on an extensive range of topics addressing children’s development, learning and behaviour.

Whole School Therapy: This innovative model of intervention offers specialist speech and occupational therapy services to a whole school population and staff.
