About Allowah

Allowah Children’s Hospital has been providing specialty care and support for kids with complex disabilities and medical needs for almost 70 years. We provide Paediatric disability support services, hospital care, respite/short term accommodation and Allied Health therapies such as Occupational Therapy, Dietetics, Speech Therapy and Physiotherapy.

Allowah Presbyterian Children’s Hospital is a fully accredited and licensed hospital and an NDIS registered disability support provider. Located in a modern, bright and light facility in Dundas Valley, Sydney, NSW. We support children and young people up to the age of eighteen who have physical and intellectual disabilities such as genetic or chromosomal disorders, birth trauma, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and conditions acquired after birth.

The children we support live with complex disabilities and medical needs and often require a high level of medical care. The transdisciplinary approach to the provision of support through Allowah Disability Support Services is key. Allowah has the staff, facilities and expertise that gives parents and carers peace-of-mind and the support they need. 

Our staff are exceptional in the way they care for the children. Our child-centred approach provides children and their carers with respect, dignity, emotional and spiritual support within a Christian environment in a way that maximises quality of life. We welcome children and families from all faiths, denominations and backgrounds.
