The Children’s Hospital Foundation

The Children’s Hospital Foundation is the official charity of the Queensland Children’s Hospital and the Centre for Children’s Health Research.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation works wonders for sick kids wherever they live by supporting world-class clinical care, purchasing specialised medical equipment and supporting a range of state-wide programs.

When kids are sick or injured, it turns the family’s whole world upside down. The Children’s Hospital Foundation’s team of volunteers work tirelessly to bring smiles and laughter to sick kids in hospital and provide a welcome support to their families. Over the past 12 months, these volunteers have provided more than 90,000 positive interactions with patients and their families through bedside play, way-finding, the Scholastic Book Bunker, the Cuddle Carers program as well as supporting families in operating theatres, burns clinics and outpatient departments.

With your help, the Children’s Hospital Foundation can continue to fund research to achieve faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries. Every donation, no matter how big or small, really does make a difference to sick kids.
