Friends of Stewart House
Friends of Stewart House (FOSH) is a group of people with like-minded concern for making a difference in a child's life. Formed over 75 years ago, FOSH's primary purpose is to support the work of Stewart House through fundraising and volunteer ventures.
Membership has now expanded from former Department of Education employees and their relatives to encompass all those who wish to support such an iconic organisation. Members are invited to attend planned social activities for further fundraising and to volunteer their services in a variety of ways.
You can join online for as little as $15 per year. This forms part of the contribution made available to Stewart House annually.
We encourage all members and friends to join us throughout the year at Stewart House social events.
