Program Inclusions

The Quest for Life Foundation is a registered charity that does its very best to turn no one away on financial grounds. We understand that chronic illness and many other circumstances can stretch people’s finances. The Quest for Life Foundation actively fundraises so that subsidies are available to support people’s attendance on our programs. Please speak to us about your particular circumstances if finances are an issue for you.
