Very Special Kids cares for children with life-threatening conditions by providing Victoria’s only children’s hospice and professional support services to families.
We help more than 900 families across Victoria who have a child with a life-threatening condition with ongoing support from diagnosis all the way through to bereavement.
Sadly, almost all of the children we care for will not reach adulthood.
We provide free of charge care for these children and families, but we can't do it on our own. It costs $9.1 million each year to operate Very Special Kids and we rely substantially on the generous support of the community, so please give generously and together we can make a difference.
