Supporting the only hospice for Queensland kids

The Institute supports a charity each year with a connection to housing or development. This year we will support Hummingbird House and their amazing work as Queensland’s only children’s hospice. Co-founders, Paul and Gabrielle Quilliam, started the organisation after fostering a child affected by a life-limiting condition.

The house provides short stays, therapies, family support, and end of life care for children with life limiting conditions and their families. Located at Chermside, the house opened in October 2016.  You can read about some the families helped so far here.

If you’d like to support their work, you can donate to their current fundraising campaign here.

The Institute will set aside funds that were to be spent throughout the year on speaker gifts to donate to Hummingbird House. They will also be our raffle partner for the 2018 Awards for Excellence in November.
