Your tax-deductible donation will make a real difference.

Your donation helps The Mooring provide emotional and practical care to families of patients in Intensive Care. 

Most families arrive at the Gold Coast University Hospital from interstate or regional areas with no local support, in unfamiliar places and in a state of anxiety. 

The Mooring come alongside families to provide accommodation and “wrap around care” to meet their needs for practical and emotional support. 

Supporting families through their darkest days.

Every family receives a Family Support Volunteer that walks alongside for their entire stay at GCUH. Additionally, practical assistance includes accommodation, care packs, meals, transport, Go-Cards, vouchers for petrol and groceries as well as information about local facilities and services. We invite you to partner with us in supporting these families through their toughest times.

How your donation could help

From our families

“Thank you again for everything, I wouldn’t have been able to stay with my husband without The Mooring. I can’t tell you how much this has meant to me.”

“My petrol tank was on empty, if you didn’t meet me at the petrol station I would have run out of fuel on the way to the hospital to feed my twins in NICU.”

“We just received our care package and are overwhelmed and so grateful for all that you have given us.”

“It was so wonderful to have a meal and not have to look for a shop, I can’t thank you enough.”
