Telethon Kids Institute is based within the Perth Children's Hospital and is one of the largest and most successful medical research institutes in Australia. Our vision is simple - Happy Healthy Kids. We bring together community, researches, practitioners, policy makers and funders who share our mission to improve the health, development and lives of children and young people through excellence in research. Importance we want knowledge applied so it makes a difference. We involve volunteers in the Institute through a number of ways. We are constantly on the look out for study volunteers to take part in our research projects and volunteers who assist in our community education facility - the Discovery Centre.
