In November 2006, John and Justine Perkins tragically lost their 8-month-old baby daughter Olivia to a rare illness. This devastating time, however, inspired the creation of Touched By Olivia, with the purpose of aiding children, focussing on those with disabilities. In her short life, Olivia touched many hearts, and through the founding of the Touched By Olivia Foundation she has continued to change the lives of those who her legacy impacts.
Touched By Olivia has partnered with developers, corporates and recently with Variety, the Children’s Charity, to create in excess of 24 inclusive playspaces across Australia. Through this partnership we hope to continue to promote inclusivity through play and set the standard for playgrounds across Australia.
