Limbs 4 Kids Program

Limbs 4 Life created the Limbs 4 Kids program to provide greater support to all Australian children and young people living with congenital or acquired limb differences. The Limbs 4 Kids program was also established to support all those who care for children and young people with limb differences; whether they are parents, carers, siblings, family members, professional healthcare providers, educators or community workers.


Limbs 4 Kids has its own website –


Limbs 4 Kids was originally trialled in Victoria between 2012 and 2014 (under the banner ‘Carers, Children and Youth Program’) and over that time it became apparent that this unique support was needed across Australia and not just in Victoria.

Limbs 4 Kids delivers this through:
  • •  website & online Kids-Link Forum
  • •  ‘Thrive’ magazine & information fact sheets
  • •  the training of parents and carers as Peer Support Volunteers
  • •  assisting in the establishment of local Support Groups
  • •  conducting social and information events
  • •  independent research conducted by Monash University.
