Illness Support Holiday Program

The Paradise Kids Illness Support Holiday Program was established in April 2009 to offer families (from rural and remote areas, and other parts of Australia) with a child who has a terminal or life-limiting illness an opportunity to enjoy a one-week holiday. While here, the child and the family receive counselling and support to understand their feelings about the illness and the limits it places on their life.
Paradise Kids is totally dependent on external donations from the community along with successful grants, so help us help families in need. Click and donate today!
The program includes:
• Illness support program
• Sibling support
• Emotional support for parents and extended family members
The program offers the whole family time to experience the beauty of the Gold Coast, with its many recreational facilities.
The Paradise Kids Illness Support Holiday House has two 3-bedroom units (one with wheelchair access) with a large communal family and kitchen area. The lovely beach theme throughout reflects the Gold Coast ethos and life style.
