About KIN

Together we can make a difference…

The Kids In Need Association (KIN) is a Gold Coast based charity that supports children with disability and serious illness in the South East Queensland and Northern NSW regions.

Established in 1982, KIN is run by a small group of volunteers who raise funds through sponsorship and fundraising. We do not have a head office and  therefore have minimal overheads. This means that all the funds we raise can go towards making life easier for many children and their families. KIN has been a very successful and much needed organisation in our local community.

100% of money donated is guaranteed to be used on the continual support of the children. We have gained a reputation for reliability, generosity and a prompt response with a minimum of fuss that is greatly valued by families and service providers throughout the Gold Coast and Northern NSW.
