What we do


House icon

A place to call home

We primarily support regional families who find it difficult to access affordable accommodation while their child is undergoing treatment, with an average stay of 6-10 months. We have 17 self-contained units, across 6 properties in Brisbane to provide a home away from home during treatment.

Care icon

Emotional and financial support

We provide some financial assistance to families that are experiencing financial hardship as a result of their child’s cancer diagnosis. We have a dedicated team to provide a support network during their stay and when they return home. We can also work closely with qualified teachers to assist in your child’s education.


Transport icon

Transport

We understand that getting around Brisbane can be challenging. That’s why we provide a free transport service, Monday to Friday, for Childhood Cancer Support and paediatric oncology families.
