The burns journey

The quality of the outcome must be worth the pain of survival

Professor Fiona Wood AM

Our skin is the body’s largest organ and is critical to survival. When you experience a burn caused by extreme heat or cold, contact with electricity, chemicals, friction or radiation, the skin is injured.

Our stories

Our vision at the Foundation is to deliver scarless healing, in both mind and body, to those who suffer from burn injury.

We understand that lives will change following a burn injury, however with the money we receive from our funders and the generous donations from the community, we are using research to guide the treatment we give at the bedside.

Hear from our inspirational patients as their share their stories.
