Hummingbird House is a joint initiative of Hummingbird House Foundation and Wesley Mission Queensland, and is only possible thanks to broader partnerships with government and the community.
Hummingbird House Foundation
Hummingbird House Foundation (trading as Hummingbird House) is a not for profit organisation established in February 2011 to address gaps in services for Queensland children and their families.
Since its inception, Hummingbird House Foundation has developed strong connections locally, nationally, and internationally with specialist paediatric palliative care services. The competence and character of the Hummingbird House Foundation Board has led to an official International Children’s Palliative Care Network twinning agreement with the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices in the UK, and strong working partnerships with Bear Cottage in New South Wales and Very Special Kids in Victoria.
Hummingbird House Foundation’s primary role is to support fundraising, advocate, and provide strategic oversight and guidance for Hummingbird House.
The Hummingbird House Foundation Board comprises of: Kevin Joyce (Chair), Mark James, Damien Rossi, Kerryn Fewster, Keith Howells, Kym Warner (Immediate Past Chair) and Candice O’Neill (Company Secretary).
