Play Australia is delighted to support the work of theTouched by Olivia Foundation, a charity established in Sydney, NSW to give children healthier and happier lives realized through two key initiatives:
1.Vascular Birthmarks Research and Support
We improve the education and wellbeing of children in under-resourced communities through training and resourcing communities to build beautiful, safe playgrounds.
Our aim is to change the culture of education and the design of schools in the developing world to become more focused on the needs of children. Particularly the need for children to play.

You may be aware that the Committee of Management of PRAV has for some time been developing plans to facilitate the transformation of PRAV into a national organisation to be known as Play Australia and to develop an organisation which will accurately reflect our membership base, and provide services and support to the development of play across all states and territories within Australia.
