After an incredible 15-year ride and raising $20 million for the burns community across Australia and New Zealand, the Julian Burton Burns Trust closed its doors on Friday 29th June 2018. We are thrilled to announce that Kidsafe SA, Kidsafe Australia, the Australian and New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA) and Burnslife will continue the legacy of our burns prevention, care and support programs through funding support from the Julian Burton Burns Trust. Thank you to all our supporters for their warmth, care and generosity over the past 15 years. Your contributions have left a lasting legacy on the burns community across Australia and beyond.

Kidsafe is dedicated to the prevention of unintentional death and serious injury to children across Australia. Kidsafe SA will continue to deliver our highly successful BurnSafe Education Programs to Primary Schools and Early Learning Centres in SA. Kidsafe Australia will deliver National Burns Awareness Month in June each year in collaboration with Mundipharma.


ANZBA is the peak medical body for health professionals for the care of the burn injured in Australia and New Zealand and is dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by burn injury. Through funding from the Burns Trust, ANZBA will develop a Postgraduate in Burns Nursing and continue bi-national benchmarking via the Burn Registry of Australia and New Zealand.


Burnslife, an initiative of the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Foundation, is a program that assists burns patients and their families on their road to recovery and rehabilitation through peer support, education and care facilities. Our collaboration with Burnslife will see them take on the successful annual Julian Burton Burns Trust’s National Burn Survivor Education & Support Forum.
