Little Wings is a non-profit organization that provides free, professional and safe flight and ground transport services for seriously ill children in rural and regional NSW. We strive to ease the journey and help sick children access specialised medical services and treatments that are only available in major cities or towns. We do everything we can to support families by easing the financial burden, emotional strain and travel fatigue that they experience due to the long-distance travel associated with receiving vital medical treatment.
Little Wings started by providing services to children undergoing cancer treatment at The Children’s Hospital in Westmead, Sydney. Since then, our team has worked hard to extend our services to assist other seriously ill children receiving treatment at The Sydney Children’s Hospital Network, The John Hunter Children’s Hospital in Newcastle and Royal Far West in Manly.
Today, we proudly support children experiencing serious illness across all domains, from the physical to the psychological. Ultimately, working to ensure that we support in meaningful ways, appreciating the complex impact serious and chronic illness have on children and their families.
