Connected for Kids. Connected for Life.


ConnecTeD Foundation is a fundraising and support group for all types and forms of connective tissue disorders.

Our prime focus is to support the children, adults and families of persons with connective tissue disorders. We do this by:

  • Raising awareness
  • Educating professionals, families and the public
  • Funding research
  • Supporting the CTD Clinic at Westmead
  • Supporting other organisations who support CTDs

All of us at ConnecTeD Foundation have been affected in one way or another by a connective tissue disorder and understand how emotionally and physically challenging having one of these rare and complex conditions can be.

What We Do


— Fund Research

We fund research into Connective Tissue Disorders via research grants. Ultimately to improve knowledge and management of connective tissue disorders conditions.


— Educate

We educate professionals, persons affected by connective tissue disorders and the public through digital channels, forums, workshops, conferences and education awareness days.


— Support

We support the connective tissue disorder clinic at Westmead to promote a place of excellence and like minded professionals which focus on care and management of these conditions.
