Stewart House was established in 1931 – at the height of the Great Depression – on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with a mission to care for children in need from public schools across NSW and ACT. Each year, up to 1600 disadvantaged children aged 6-14 attend an on-site residential program for up to 12 days,
where they receive audio, optical, dental, and medical treatments as well as emotional support. Children also participate in health and educational programs and excursions to boost their self-esteem and promote a healthier lifestyle. Children are drawn from 2200+ NSW and ACT public schools and are nominated to attend by their home school principal, who has identified underlining health and wellbeing concerns. For circumstances beyond their control, these children face challenging situations that put them at a disadvantage from their peers. Stewart House has been in operation for 91 years and is one of Australia's longest-running children's charities.
