supporting children, adults and families
Raising awareness, educating and fostering research to improve quality of life for those affected by Connective Tissue Disorders
ConnecTeD Foundation (previously ConnecTeD for Kids) is a committee and support network, who assist in supporting the health and welfare of children, adults and families affected by connective tissue disorders.
ConnecTeD Foundation has three primary objectives:
- Encourage education about Connective Tissue Disorders (CTDs) to medical professionals and members of the community to:
- raise awareness
- aid in medical diagnoses
- support life long management
- Foster research for all CTDs
- Provide a support network for individuals, carers and families affected by CTDs
ConnecTeD Foundation’s hope is that through continued awareness, education and support that we can provide shared knowledge to impact and serve the greater community.

ConnecTeD Foundation began over 28 years ago as a small support committee, founded by families affected by CTDs. Today we have grown into a foundation where we have held national conferences, funded life changing research and continue to act as an umbrella organisation to other CTD support organisations.
