Tom Bowen Legacy Trust Fund

Mission Statement

Established in 2003, the Tom Bowen Legacy Trust Fund (TBLTF) is overseen by the  Bowen Therapists Federation of Australia (BTFA) and the Bowen Association of Australia (BAA).

Tom Bowen was dedicated to treating children with disabilities, and he set up a free clinic where once a month he would treat them for free.

The TBLTF was established to honour his legacy by helping disadvantaged children with the donation of electronic, communication and mobility aids to those in need.

This fund is supported wholly by donations from Bowen practitioners and members of the public. With volunteer administration, 100 percent of donations support the purchasing of equipment to improve the lives of disadvantaged children.


  • To provide an ongoing source of funds for gifts that will improve the quality of life of children with disabilities.
  • To promote public awareness of Tom Bowen's work in treating individuals with disabilities.
  • To provide a model for similar organisations in other countries where Tom Bowen's work is practiced.
