Our Mission / Objective

Stewart House provides a range of caring experiences within a quality health, education and recreation environment, designed to improve the self-esteem, resilience and general wellbeing of children in need from NSW and ACT public schools.

We want children who come to Stewart House to:

  • Have a wide range of rich and rewarding experiences;
  • Be inspired to see beyond their present circumstances;
  • Have real hope and positive aspirations. 

Our Services

Each year, up to 1,700 public school children in need are cared for by Stewart House. These children have special needs due to ill health, emotional or other distress, family problems, financial or social difficulty, lack of care or isolation. We recognise that through no fault of their own, some children are doing it tough for a whole range of different reasons and are in need of some extra support.

Children are nominated to attend by their own school principal who believes they are in need of a break from their current circumstance. During their 12-day stay at Stewart House, children are provided with optometric, dental and medical assessment and urgent treatment as well as emotional support. This is balanced with health and educational programs and out of school activities to boost their self-esteem and to promote a healthier lifestyle.

Our Beneficiaries

Children from across 2,200 NSW public schools who are in need of a break from their current circumstance.
These children are aged between 8-14 years old and attend the 12-day out-of-home program at no cost to their parents/caregivers. Every year we must raise $5 million to continue operating at capacity and rely entirely on charitable donations.
