Move to Improve Program

The Move to Improve Program invites children who have experienced a burn injury to join their physical activity initiative designed to promote physical health, mental health and well-being! This 8-week physical activity intervention has been designed to assist children and adolescents with ongoing health conditions in becoming more physically active. 

It aims to help children and their families overcome barriers that might otherwise impede their participation in sporting and other physical activities. Move to Improve is at the heart of a five-year research project headed by some of Western Australia’s leading child and adolescent health researchers. 

Currently, Move to Improve is available to children and adolescents aged 5 to 17 who have cancer, type 1 diabetes, a burn injury (at least 6 weeks post-burn injury), or cerebral palsy under the care of a PCH medical team. To find out more information, please visit
