Every year more than 1200 families rely on equipment from the Home Equipment Centre to enable their children to be cared for at home rather than in the Hospital.
Thanks to the support of five WCH Foundation corporate donors; The Lott by SA Lotteries, Sodexo, Curing Homesickness, Coles, and the SA Power Networks Employee Foundation, the Centre has relocated to a refurbished and larger premise.
The WCH Foundation Laklinyeri Beach House, located within the picturesque Encounter Lakes in Victor Harbor, is South Australia’s first purpose-built holiday home for families with children with complex medical needs or in palliative care.
Officially opened in July 2019, the Beach House is specifically designed, constructed and medically equipped, while the beautiful interiors, landscaping and sweeping views of the lake create a sense of calm and wellness.
Families' stays are funded through donations made to the WCH Foundation.

This book is valuable to anyone living in a family with meltdowns and also to those working in educational settings who can use this book as a starting point for discussions about family emotions. Please contact the Foundation to purchase.
