The Frankie Foundation has been born out of the need to help bridge the NDIS gap between funding and therapy needs for many Australian families.
The Frankie Foundation
The Frankie Foundation is named after our founder’s daughter, Frankie, who has a rare genetic condition, special needs, global delay and medical complications.
Our goal is to offer families some support by awarding grants from $200-$2000 to pay for their child’s therapy. This may be 1 session or 10, depending on how much gap they have and what we can provide.
