Thank you for visiting Stewart House. Our website has a wealth of information about our programs and opportunities we provide children who are in need of a break from their everyday life.
Each year 1,800 public school children in need come to Stewart House from many parts of NSW and the ACT. During their stay, children are provided with optometric, dental and medical treatment as well as emotional support. This is balanced with health and educational programs and out of school activities to boost their self-esteem and to promote a healthier lifestyle.
Children in the care of Stewart House attend a specific purpose school onsite for 8 days of their 12-day stay. The NSW Department of Education and Communities provides infrastructure and staffing support for this school. All others costs associated with the childrens' stay are met from charitable donations.
Stewart House needs your support to ensure we can continue to provide important services to children.
During the program children:
Receive free eye, dental and health screening and treatment.
Develop self-care and conflict resolutions skills.
Learn to relax and overcome anxiety.
Participate in excursions and activities to develop a broader outlook on life.
Establish friendships and routines in a safe community.
