About us

Plumtree is a not-for-profit organisation that provides support for both young children aged birth to 8 years old who have a developmental delay or disability and their families. Our vision is a society where children with disabilities and developmental delays, and their families, are supported to have a full life in the community.

Plumtree has been a trusted community-based organisation for over 30 years. We draw on the diverse expertise of our staff to provide tailored support for children and families, including education, therapy, information and training in a variety of settings — in the home, at the child’s preschool, child care centre or school, at our Marrickville centre and in other community settings and online.

We have an outstanding team who work from the heart, bringing a diversity of expertise and deep knowledge to a nurturing environment where families no longer feel isolated, but instead feel more cared for and informed. We also proudly pioneer innovative new ways to help our families. We are big enough so our team can provide a depth of expertise to you and your child yet small enough to really care and influence the community we work with.
