Sponsor a nurse for Hummingbird House.

We need $220,000 to fund additional nurse hours at no cost to families.

We witness the heartbreak of children living with life-limiting conditions. But with your support, we can ensure that more parents have the opportunity to say goodbye to their child in a dedicated, specialised environment like Hummingbird House.

How we support our Queensland families

Tia and Ayden's story

"I come here with my son Ayden, who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, and his brothers and sisters. All my time at home revolves around Ayden - feeding him, changing him, repositioning him, making sure he's happy. It's very hard, it's very stressful. It's a really big thing for us to come down here for a bit of rest."

Tia, Ayden's mum 

Ainsley's story (Nurse Navigator)

"What I think families appreciate most about nurses at Hummingbird House is the sense of safety. Coming to Hummingbird House, talking with our staff, and felling like they're with people who understand and getting that extra layer of support really gives them a sense of comfort."

Ainsley, Nurse Navigator
