Our Mission / Objective

We partner with the community to improve children’s health by supporting and funding clinical care, research and education.

Projects in Progress

Your support helps give sick kids access to the most advanced clinical programs money can buy. World-class research, state-of-the-art medical equipment, alternative therapies, entertainment programs. The work we do at the Children’s Hospital Foundation supports every aspect of the healing environment needed to help sick kids get better and go home happy and healthy to their families.

We support sick kids and their families when they are in hospital by offering a range of programs and activities that provide welcome distractions and entertainment for all.

Bedside play

Some kids in hospital are just too sick to get out of bed. Our play volunteers make sure they don’t miss out on the chance to smile and take the fun to their bedside with iPads, toys, games and puzzles. Not only do our volunteers play with kids in their rooms, but they can also leave behind toys and games for patients and families to enjoy together.

Bravery Beads

Bravery Beads recognise the strength and courage kids in hospital show every single day when they face a procedure or treatment. Every bead is a bravery award for kids with serious or life-threatening illnesses, and for some, the string is metres long. Bravery Beads are currently available at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital and Bundaberg Hospital, and we look forward to offering the program to children in regional hospitals throughout Queensland.

Family resource centre

Parents’ worlds are turned upside down by a sudden illness or injury to their child. Our resource centre helps families spending time in hospital, particularly those from remote or regional areas, offering them support such as free wi-fi, local support groups, phones, faxes, computers, printers, and volunteers on hand to assist in any way they can.

Music therapy

For many sick kids, music therapy is an integral part of their rehabilitation and recovery. Through the generosity of our partners, we are proud to fund the music therapy program at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. Music helps build, or rebuild, important neurological pathways that help sick kids regain control of their language, speech and coordination.

Scholastic Book Bunker

Kids in hospital can visit the Scholastic Book Bunker to sit and read their favourite story, or have a story read to them. Our volunteers also visit the patients regularly, handing out books to those who need to stay in bed, or sitting with them to share a story together.

Steggles Cuddle Carers

Our Steggles Cuddle Carers provide comfort to the tiniest of patients, giving parents the chance to take a break from their baby’s bedside. The value of a cuddle is priceless for a sick child and their parents.
