Bridges for Learning provides a range of therapy and support services for children 0–15 and their families.
We are a team of highly qualified and dedicated paediatric professionals, who provide therapy and support within a positive, fun and caring environment.
Since 1986, we have provided assistance for families, parents and carers in the Southern Highlands, providing ongoing support to educate and nurture.
Bridges for Learning is a non-government organisation and registered charity. We are funded by government contributions, by private donations and fees. As an incorporated association we are governed by a volunteer management committee. Anyone who is interested can become an association member of Bridges for Learning. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact us.

Volunteers are offered an induction and support from a member of the team. If you have a particular interest or skill and would like to talk about volunteering, we would be glad to hear from you.
