Special care - when and where it matters most

Palliative care is a very special service for children not only preparing for the end of their child’s life but for children with serious illnesses and life-limiting conditions. Family Support Volunteers are essential to this service, visiting families at home, helping to support a family’s unique needs. It’s a rewarding, but also emotionally demanding, role and one that needed our support.

Let’s cure homesickness

Recently we launched a unique national fundraising initiative, Curing Homesickness, bringing children’s hospitals from across Australia together to get kids home from hospital sooner.

Donations will go towards helping kids in hospital get back home, where they belong, by investing in ground-breaking research, state-of-the-art technology, and the amazing doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who deliver the care children need.
