The services offered by CYPF do not operate under just one roof, in-fact CYPF’s network of services spans an area the size of the UK.

Despite this vast geographical network, CYPF is able to provide access to world-class quality health care with our specialists travelling to regional and rural centres. This services, known as Outreach enables CYPF to meet the health care needs of families who otherwise need to travel many hours to see their paediatric specialist.


Why we need your support

Community support has an important role to play in enabling our children's health services to keep the dreams of sick and injured children alive. It is only because of our community's generosity that we are able to fill the gap between government funding and our additional healthcare needs.

With your support of our children's health services we are able to treat our patients with the most state-of-the-art equipment in a modern, friendly, caring healing environement.

Every dollar donated brings our children's health services that much closer to funding another piece of life-changing or life-saving equipment. Your donation may even contribute to one of our refurbishment projects, such as a patient room or treatment space, so that our sick or injured children and young people feel at home when away from home.
