Working together to prevent, cure and care
That simple sentence sums up Flinders Foundation’s purpose – to work together with individuals and organisations in the community to support health and medical research and improve patient care across the Flinders medical precinct.
Together, we raise vital funds to support the leading clinicians and researchers across Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to make medical discoveries and improve the care available to patients and their families.
Dementia changed a healthy family man into someone who was unable to care for himself, or even recognise his wife of 55 years.
With your support, Flinders Foundation can help people with dementia, and their families, to improve their experience in hospital and their long-term outcomes.

Thanks to generous supporters, corporate partners and fundraisers in our community, new discoveries are being made across a range of diseases, illnesses and social issues and extra support is available to patients and their families across the Flinders medical precinct.
