VCFS community is a reliable group that helps people with Velocardiofacial Syndrome. Our team of volunteers includes health experts, psychologists and social activities. They leave no stone unturned to help a person with this syndrome. All our volunteers are not only experienced and very knowledgeable but also have the intention to do something better for such people. We also keep track of companies who want to spend money on various charity works and use the money for the treatment and therapies of such people. We also organise various events in Queensland that are headed by our experts and specialists. They educate the people with their experience and knowledge.
VCFS foundation started many years ago by the families who once looked for some support and better treatment for their kid and other family members. Today, we are one of the largest communities in Australia, supporting thousands of people who have this syndrome. When we started our journey, we only had a couple of volunteers, which has gradually increased over the years and now it is more than 140. Moreover, we have also associated with much more educational and medical institutions in comparison to our early days.
We want to support and encourage people who have this syndrome. Our community will also try to establish and maintain links with other concerned groups in Queensland and other parts of the country. We also want to support VCFS sufferers and make life easier for them with our constant efforts. Our volunteers want to manage tutorials, seminars, lectures, etc., for sharing, discussing and distributing information regarding this health issue. We also want to plan with governments and health funds to make sure that such people have easy access to funds to get treatment and therapy.
We want to build a community where all the people will get equal opportunity as much as possible, even if a person has Velocardiofacial Syndrome. We want to help every kid and grown-up in Queensland and other parts of the country, who find it difficult to talk, eat, learn and unable to behave properly. As a community, we always want to stand with them in every big or small moment of life.
At VCFS foundation, the objectives are very clear. Within a year, we want to add 50 new volunteers to our team so that we can work in a much more detailed and organised manner. There are still many families who are struggling with this problem and are desperately looking for some solution. We also want to organise more event and to all the possible location in Queensland, so that we can educate more people about it.

“I would like to thank the VCFS community for helping our 8-year-old son. As he has this syndrome, it was difficult for him to talk and learn new things, but VCFS changed everything.”
“My brother has Velocardiofacial syndrome, and thus he always had some behavioural issues and not very social. Then I came to know about the VCFS community, and they help him a lot.”
“I am social activists and work in the Brisbane region. While doing a survey on Velocardiofacial syndrome in Brisbane, I came to know about the VCFS and learn how commendable their job they are doing.”
My 5-year old son has this problem for a long time, and we were looking for the right help. Then someone told me about the VCFS. They helped my son in more than many ways.
