Allowah Presbyterian Children's Hospital Appeal

Allowah cares for children and young people up to the age of 18 with physical and intellectual disabilities such as genetic or chromosomal disorders, birth trauma, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and diseases acquired after birth. Currently Allowah is supporting over 80 families mainly from New South Wales. Allowah is vital in supporting the children as well as their families, and is credited with keeping families together that otherwise would fracture because of the incredible strain placed on them.

Why are you collecting funds?

  1. With the help of donations we have purchased a house next to the hospital at 2 Perry St to expand our services to the community. This needs major renovations and will provide six residential rooms for adults with complex disabilities and two respite beds.
  2. Allowah Intervention & Therapy Service will become a National Disability Insurance Scheme provider, building on the existing Early Intervention Service and relocating to 2 Perry Street to allow for the expansion.
  3. Some families are not covered by a health fund but still need this type of care. We can provide limited services at no cost if funds available.

How will the funds be used?

  1. Plans have been submitted to council to renovate 2 Perry St. This is estimated to cost $1,200,000.
  2. Subsidise families not covered by a health fund.
Allowah Presbyterian Children's Hospital is a ministry of Presbyterian Social Services. It is located at 8 Perry St. DUNDAS NSW 2117.
