On the 1st of July, 2021 KidzWish Foundation became a member of The Disability Trust Group. Founded in 2004, KidzWish Foundation had recognised a need to join forces with a larger organisation to continue providing high-quality services to children and families in the complex, fast-growing and competitive market created by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Following an extensive search for an organisation that aligned in values and brand DNA, the KidzWish management and Board agreed to merge with The Disability Trust.
As a leading disability service providera in NSW, The Disability Trust and Kidzwish are embarking on a collaborative relationship; the key drivers of which are mutual respect and the shared purpose of enabling better lives for children and adults with disability. Ultimately, this merger allows KidzWish to leverage the expertise and capabilities of The Disability Trust to expand its therapies and programs for children and their families across the Illawarra. Importantly, the merger will provide both organisations the opportunity to deliver continuity of care across a lifetime, so children have clinical consistency and feel supported as they enter into adulthood

The Disability Trust CEO Margaret Bowen welcomed the intention to merge with KidzWish saying, “We are delighted to be working towards the KidzWish team joining The Disability Trust Group. This merger will bring our services together to provide a continuum of support for people living with a disability at all stages of life. The Disability Trust recognises the positive reputation of KidzWish and values the services that have been provided to children with a disability in our local community.” “As leading providers of disability services and supports, we recognise the importance of continuing to evolve to meet the changing needs of both people living with a disability and the landscape presented by the NDIS.”
