SKiP – Supporting Kids in Pain

2016 Grant Winner

SKIP won the 2016 Women and Change Grant. SKIP used these funds to create a regional extension of SKIP’s work, reaching doctors and patients across regional Queensland to educate GP’s and ensure more children are accurately diagnosed. This initiative has a lasting impact in ensuring children receive help with the physical, mental and social impacts of chronic pain. SKIP’s specialist team highlighted that without intervention, children with chronic pain are at risk of developing permanent disabilities, drug dependency or abuse, or failure to complete their schooling, leading to a lack of opportunity later in life.
