About Bear Cottage

Bear Cottage is the only children’s hospice in NSW. Established in 2001, Bear Cottage provides support, respite and end-of-life care to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. For the children we care for, there is no happy ending, no miracle cure. As heart-breaking as this is, at Bear Cottage we believe that life is for living and we help families to make the most of every day.

Bear Cottage is a wonderfully uplifting and inspiring place providing the very best of specialised care. Children laugh and play here, and families are encouraged to focus on creating lasting memories of special times together. We believe that life, however brief, should be enriched, enjoyed, and celebrated. With your support, Bear Cottage can continue to be a home that is full of special moments and cherished memories.

Families don’t pay to stay at Bear Cottage and your support ensures that we are always here to care for them.

Bear Cottage is part of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and supported by Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, the charity that fundraises to ensure every sick child has access to extraordinary care.
