Very Special Kids provides flexible family support programs, planned and emergency respite and end-of-life care for families caring for a child with a life-threatening condition.
When a child has a life-threatening condition it impacts on the whole family. We use a family-centred approach that recognises the strengths and individuality of each family member.
