Who we are

Childhood Cancer Support was founded by families who focused on advocacy and improvement in treatment facilities, including the need for skilled personnel and specialised equipment. These families also identified the urgent need to provide suitable home-away-from-home family styled accommodation facilities for regional families who needed to relocate to Brisbane for long-term oncology treatments for their child.

Since 1975, Childhood Cancer Support has been helping families impacted by childhood cancer with a place to call home during their child’s cancer treatment in Brisbane. Our recently renovated accommodation houses encourages family and friends to visit to provide love and support to the families to assist throughout the cancer journey. We provide holistic support to families impacted by childhood cancer in an inclusive, warm and loving social environment for the families, professional counselling services and transport services to and from the Queensland Children’s Hospital.


Childhood Cancer Support was founded by families

and is proud to be a leading pioneer

in the provision of long-term accommodation

for regional families facing childhood cancer.

Our Mission is to help families impacted by childhood cancer.

Our Vision is to create a positive community in the lives of families that have been impacted by childhood cancer.

Our Values

Togetherness – we know every family is different and bring a lifeline to an understanding community

Compassion – we recognise the toughest parts of the journey and we will be there no matter

Support – we are the quiet strength and there to help when things are difficult
