How We Help

We’ve developed a range of Programs to help families enjoy more everyday moments when they need it most.

18 Houses

Our House Program offers families a place to stay close to the hospital. They are especially helpful for families who have to travel far to receive treatment for their child. The House accommodation is equipped with everything families need to feel supported during their stay.

19 Family Rooms

Our Family Rooms are located inside the hospital and close to the children’s wards.
They give families a chance to recharge after many stressful hours at their child’s side. Each Family Room is equipped with areas to rest, eat, freshen up, play and relax.

Learning Program
1,200 students/week

Extended stays in hospital or receiving medical treatment means kids miss school.Our tailored one-to-one tuition help kids catch up on schoolwork so that they feel confident as they transition back to school.

Our Learning Program also offers professional development for educators. EDMed™ provides teachers with information about the potential impacts of a serious or chronic illness, as well as educational strategies to support the needs of these students impacted by a serious or chronic illness.

5 Family Retreats

Our Family Retreats give families a chance to forget the stresses of hospital life. They’re open to families with a seriously ill child, or those grieving the loss of a child. 

1 Care Mobile

Our Care Mobile brings care to children in remote and rural NSW, in partnership with Royal Far West. It ensures distance isn’t a barrier to receiving assessments and early intervention services for children in these areas.
