ADHD Board


Why are we here

ADHD Australia was established from a need to stand up for, and support, people impacted by ADHD in order to optimise positive outcomes for those individuals, their families and the community at large.


Who we are

ADHD Australia is a registered national, independent, non-profit organisation which is committed to removing barriers to well being for those living with ADHD. Among the key guiding principles of our founding directors was to be independent of all existing ADHD bodies, working closely with them to complement their existing efforts.


How will we do it

We aim to create positive public awareness and improved understanding, through evidence-based information, which will reduce the stigma associated with ADHD. Our focus will be across the education and health related areas which will have the greatest positive impact. We will also partner with government and other like-minded organisations to fulfill our vision.

ADHD is a registered charity

ADHD Australia has put in place an organisational structure which includes governance, company reporting, audited financial statements, risk management, and appropriate policies and processes for staff and the organisation. It has tax-deductable charity status with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), is registered as a charity with the Australian Charity and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and has national fundraising licences across Australia.
