Who’s eligible to stay with us?

Our primary goal is to provide safe and reliable short and long-term accommodation for regional families who have to travel away from their homes for their child to receive medical treatment at Perth Children’s Hospital or at King Edward Memorial Hospital.


We understand that being away from home for long periods of time can put families under financial pressure. That’s why our accommodation is free for eligible families with sick or injured kids.

While our policy is to provide free accommodation, your stay at the House may require you to claim financial support towards accommodation and travel from the relevant government transport assistance scheme. Our friendly team are happy to work with you to apply for the relevant financial support.

To find out if you’re eligible for government financial assistance, contact your hospital social worker or talk to one of our team.


If you have questions about our Houses, Booking a Stay, or Staying with Us, fill out the form so our Operations Team can respond to you.
