How You Can Help

Volunteer

 

Interested in volunteering with HHA? 

Whether it’s a one-off event, joining a working party or offering us your skills or experience in a certain area, we’d love to hear from you!

What do you need to do to be a HHA volunteer?

There are some general health and safety policies and procedures you’ll need to get acquainted with prior to jumping on board as a volunteer. Depending on what you are helping us with, you'll need to agree to some other HHA specific policies; these are designed to make it a pleasant time for all involved.

For more information check out the other pages under this section or contact us and we'll gladly be in touch.

Sponsorship

 

Corporate sponsorship is welcomed and tailored to suit your business.

Sponsorship opportunities exist for:

  • the development of parent supports and resources
  • promotion of awareness campaigns relevant to hip dysplasia
  • facilitating courses for health professionals

Please contact us to discuss. If sponsorship is not for you, there are other ways you can help, so please get in touch to have a chat.

Spread The Word

 

Sadly, the incidence of hip dysplasia appears to be on the rise due to preventable factors such as newborn swaddling / wrapping products and baby carriers that doesn't allow for natural hip positioning. Learning safe ways to swaddle and purchasing hip-friendly wraps, baby wear and toys is important.

By increasing awareness of this condition,  providing education and training opportunities for health professionals and encouraging research opportunities, Healthy Hips Australia aims to help reduce the number of unnecessary cases of hip dysplasia, while supporting those affected by the condition.

You can help by sharing why you've supported our organisation and the knowledge you've gained from us.
