In Paediatric Intensive Care Units (PICUs), children need the most skilled people working with advanced equipment in order to be given the best chance in life.

The Preston James Fund supports critical care initiatives in PICUs including:

  • wages and training for staff who contribute to saving lives
  • life-saving equipment
  • research programs that relate to the survival of children needing intensive care.

If you work at the Mater Children’s Hospital and have an initiative that you think the Preston James Fund might support, go to the Mater Foundation and fill in an application form, or check with us first at
