Help Us Maintain Vital Family Supports – Donate Today!

While EarlyEd receives some government funding via the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), this does not cover the full cost of running EarlyEd’s programs. As a not-for-profit organisation, EarlyEd relies heavily on support from the community to help fund vital additional services. Donate today to help contribute to the lives of disabled children and their families.

Donating to EarlyEd in any amount provides vital family supports including:

  • Support for babies born with disability
  • Early support for families at the point of diagnosis
  • Supporting the needs of the whole family
  • Advocating for inclusion of children with disabilities in their community

All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Our CFN is 10570.  See our frequently asked questions below to learn more about how your donation will help EarlyEd!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is EarlyEd a charity?

Yes EarlyEd is a registered charity and has been operating for nearly 40 years.  It was started by a group of special educators concerned that there were no services for children with disabilities or delays in their development. They knew even then that starting intervention early makes a significant difference to a child’s development and their family’s lives.

What does EarlyEd do with donations?

EarlyEd uses donations for services and activities that:

  • give support directly to parents, children and families,
  • help community agencies include children with disabilities in their programs and
  • provide staff with practical, early intervention training to suit their individual service.

Families now pay for services, so why would I donate?
Under the NDIS, the government no longer provide funds directly to not-for-profit organisations like EarlyEd, but rather individuals receive funds and choose the services they need, which are then paid for by the NDIS. This has limited the way EarlyEd can now support families. Where previous funding meant that we could provide support to families who had concerns about their child’s development, regardless of whether they had received a formal diagnosis, NDIS now means that we are only funded to run services for families with approved NDIS plans. Additionally, a number of our services do not meet NDIS funding criteria including supporting the whole needs of family through counselling and crisis support.

What specific services will my donation support?  

EarlyEd donations make sure that we can help families as soon as they need it and help them with services that aren’t covered by NDIS. These include:

  • Emergency support for families at the point of diagnosis
  • Advocating for the inclusion of children with disabilities in their community
  • Offering activities close to home
  • Funding travel to families over the NDIS cap

We provide immediate support and intervention to families with babies. If a family is concerned about their child we provide information and advice as well as support through playgroups. We meet with community agencies to keep them aware of the need to refer families early for support. In this changing time of NDIS we fill the gaps and make the government aware how changes are impacting services to children.
