Children’s Tumour Foundation

The Children’s Tumour Foundation (CTF) is the only dedicated support service for those impacted by Neurofibromatosis (NF) in Australia; a genetic condition that causes tumours to form on nerves in the body. NF is a life-long disorder with few treatment options and no cure. The CTF exists to provide a pathway from fear to hope by advocating for access to better services, investing in promising research, and empowering those impacted with knowledge, connections and support at every stage of their journey. Whiteley is a proud supporter of Children’s Tumour Foundation, and been a key sponsor of the Australian Neurofibromatosis Symposium.

Supporting our Pacific Island Neighbours

Whiteley is an Australian manufacturer of infection prevention products including a range of surface disinfectants and hand sanitisers all of which have played a critical role within our hospital and medical network in the fight against COVID-19. Despite working day and night to keep Australian medical facilities in supply, Whiteley have also focused on donating over $500,000 of infection prevention products including V-Wipes™, Surfex® and Viraclean® to our neighbouring Pacific Nations since the Pandemic started.   

Support and donations to Australia’s closest neighbours is not new for Whiteley. “Our company first engaged with Papua New Guinea in the early days of independence, and we have continued to supply products and educational support into the Papua New Guinea health care system over the many decades”, said Dr Greg Whiteley, Executive Chairman at Whiteley.  

Covid is having a significant social and economic impact within our neighbouring nations. In Papua New Guinea for instance, infection rates are soaring and the products they need to prevent infection are in very short supply.

A lot more needs to be done to support our neighbours and we urge Australian businesses to join the fight against COVID-19 in our Pacific Region” said Darran Leyden, Managing Director at Whiteley. We would also like to see Government support, specifically enabling initiatives such as freight cost relief for donated products to enable businesses like ours to further increase the scale of our donation program’’. 

Acknowledgement to Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, Whiteley acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
