The Julian Burton Burns Trust is Australia's leading non-profit organisation dedicated to burn injury. We are committed to influencing social change to reduce the incidence and impact of burn injury.

Burn injury is one of the top 3 causes of hospitalisation in children under five years of age and one of the 3 most common injuries suffered by an Australian each year.

The Julian Burton Burns Trust is committed to:

  1. Implementing school, community and Aboriginal burn prevention and first aid programs

  2. Advancing world class care through National Community Grants and patient care services

  3. Facilitating and enabling support programs for burn survivors and their families

  4. Establish and nurture mutually rewarding partnerships to deliver a sustainable community organisation committed to the prevention, care and support associated with burn injury

In an emergency call 000
Remove any clothing and jewellery from the affected area to allow effective cooling of the burn.
Cool the burn under cool running water for 20 minutes - this will stop the burning process and also help ease the pain.
Cover the burn with a clean lint free cloth or if it is a large area, cover loosely with cling wrap to lessen the chance of infection.
Seek medical advice if the burn is larger than a 20 cent piece or on the face, hands, feet or groin area.
