Very Special Kids

Very Special Kids (VSK) was established in 1985 and became the first organisation in Victoria designed to offer assistance to families of children with life-threatening conditions. VSK now provides professional, free-of-charge family support services including counselling, advocacy, sibling support,

bereavement support, networking and peer activities with trained family volunteers and specialist care at VSK Hospice. It is the only children’s hospice in Victoria offering families access to planned and emergency respite, as well as end-of-life care. The hospice provides 24-hour medical and nursing care in a warm and welcoming environment. Together with the Shadforth Vic team we are proud to be supporting VSK with a $60,000 grant.
