They risk missing school for months to years.
Our vision is to cure these kids of loneliness and gaps in learning by keeping them connected to their classmates and continuing their education.
We’ve have thousands of data points which tell us that one of the best ways to boost their mental health and wellbeing is to ensure they don’t feel forgotten. So we’re on a mission to support every sick child with ongoing access to their classroom which means that while they are absent from school they can always be present.
We need your help to get kids with complex conditions seen and heard at school.
When a child has a serious illness or injury, it’s not easy. Right alongside the medical situation sits their social isolation and your anxiety about them missing school.
We’re here to help. We can support you with resources and conversations with your child’s school, and the right technology to keep them connected in real time to their learning, teachers, classmates and whole school community.
More than a ‘nice to have’, the Disability Standards for Education require schools to give students with illness access to school facilities, accredited curriculum, and learning alongside peers.
When your student is hospitalised or homebound in a health crisis, we make it easier for your school to meet the Standards by supporting you with knowledge products and technology to continue your student’s learning and social connection.
Support a child.
Every cent helps.
If you’d like to support MissingSchool, all donations are tax deductible and your contributions will go directly to helping a sick kid have an equal chance at reaching their learning and social potential.
