Gift in Will

A family are sitting outside, smiling and laughing. There are two adults and three children.

A Very Special Difference

Thank you for considering Very Special Kids in your Will. For over 37 years, our team have provided specialist palliative care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and tailored support for their families – through life, death and bereavement. Our integrated approach includes emotional, clinical and practical support to improve quality of life and create positive, lasting memories for families across Victoria. 

The work we do is made possible through the generous support of our community – especially gifts in Will. Every gift, big and small, can make an incredible difference. 

Once you have looked after your loved ones, a gift in your Will to Very Special Kids is a thoughtful way to leave your own legacy and ensure children, young people and their families can navigate childhood illness during life and after death.  

By leaving a gift in your Will, you will join a valued circle of supporters we refer to as Very Special Guardians. Together, we can provide future generations with holistic children’s palliative care services, for the whole family. 

Sister Margaret’s Legacy

Sister Margaret Noone started Very Special Kids in 1985 when she realised there was little support available for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. Over the years, Sister Margaret has worked tirelessly to transform paediatric palliative care, by building Australia’s first children’s hospice.  

As Victoria’s specialists in children’s palliative care, the generous support of our community, especially gifts left in Will, has provided us the security to help generations of Victorian families access to the clinical and emotional support they need to navigate childhood illness. All bequests, no matter what their size, can help improve the quality of life for very special children and their families. 

We invite you to join our very special community, Sister Margaret started 37 years ago, and consider leaving a gift in your Will to support seriously-ill children and their families, across Victoria. 

By leaving a gift in your Will, you will join a valued circle of supporters we refer to as Very Special Guardians. Together, we can provide future generations of seriously-ill children and their families with the tailored support they need at every stage of their journey.
