BNCC member making a world of difference
 

BNCC member Childhood Cancer Support is the only accommodation provider in Queensland that specialises in accommodation specifically supporting paediatric oncology children (0-18yrs) and their families. The organisation provides families with a place that looks and feels like home, and a community that cares, because it is recognised that this is a battle that cannot be fought alone.

‘‘When your child is diagnosed with cancer, everything else in life takes a backseat. Childhood Cancer Support is your helping hand at a time when you need it most. That’s why we’re here.’’

Childhood Cancer Support was founded by a dedicated group of parents who realised there was an urgent need to provide a safe and family-focused environment for regional families, specifically from QLD and Northern NSW, whilst their child undergoes life-saving cancer treatment. For over 40 years the organisation has now grown into a seven-house facility comprising of 17 fully self-contained units, and 3 short-term rooms. Other services include:

  • On site Family Support Officer
  • Free pick up and drop off shuttle service from our multiple accommodation facilities, hospital, shops and airport
  • Regional support networks through our regional ambassador program
  • Med-long term fully self-contained units
  • Short term accommodation for overnight stays
  • Recreational and therapeutic activities and services
