Pottytraining.com.au Proudly Supports Queensland's only Children's Hospice


Hummingbird House will be a home away from home, providing much needed help, hope, care and support for Queensland children affected by life limiting conditions and their families.

An estimated 3700 Queensland children are affected by a life-limiting condition, which means they are not expected to reach the age of 18.  Yet there are only two children’s hospices in Australia. Neither of these are located in Queensland.

Queensland Kids and Wesley Mission Brisbane are changing this.  Hummingbird House, is being built as an innovative and sustainable respite and hospice facility to offer world-class paediatric palliative care within a home-like environment.

As Queensland’s only facility of its kind, Hummingbird House will provide high quality respite (short breaks) and end of lifel care outside of the hospital environment and will be a place for children and families to come in their time of need.

PottyTraining.com.au is a proud supporter of Hummingbird House, contributing regular financial assistance to help build this vital facility for Queensland families.

Hummingbird House will offer quality medical and end of life care for children, family retreat accommodation, flexible quality of life solutions, personalised programs, caring professional staff and dedicated volunteers in a beautiful home like surroundings.

The initiative has secured government funding to meet half of the capital and operating costs through to 2020. Hummingbird House needs our help to raise the remaining 50%.
