Supporting children with terminal or complex health conditions with therapy, support, beverament support & advoacy in the Wellington Region.Wellington
THE SWAN NEST - Governed by The James Swan Charitable Trust
When the unimaginable happens and a families life is forever altered when their child is diagnosed with a complex serious health condition or terminal illness we will be there every step of the way walking alongside these families so they don't feel alone on their incredibly difficult journey.
For children and their families who are living with a life limiting illness, each day can be like swimming upstream; each wakeful moment requires strength, courage and resilience. This can become overwhelming and the importance of knowing you are not alone on this journey is key.
The Swan Nest is a place of compassion, care, support and respect. We are here to support you when you need it and walk alongside you for as long as you need. For families who have children living with terminal complex health conditions, the support continues for you after your precious child has grown their wings.
Our nest will provide: Counselling, play therapy, music therapy, art therapy, physical therapy, individual therapy, bereavement support, advocacy and connectedness all free to the family.
As a new charity grants are incredibly hard to source and the set up costs of such a valuable and important charity are large. We ask that you consider donating to our charity so that the hundreds of families who desperately need out service can access it.
We will be starting with a mobile service with the ultimate goal of having a purpose built facility (nest).
Your support will lighten the load and enhance the lives of many children and their families.
Thank you for Supporting The Swan Nest.
The Swan Nest provides children & their family living with terminal or complex health conditions with support, therapy and advocacy services for free. Services include, counseling, sand tray, music, play and art therapy, advocacy and bereavement support.
Use of funds
Funds will be used for set up of the facility The Swan Nest, and the on going operational costs that will allow us to provide free support and therapy services to children with terminal or complex health conditions in the Wellington region.

Our original goal was set with our purpose build facility in mind. We have lowered the goal to reflect that we would like to get our mobile service set up asap as there are many families wanting to access our service.
If we can reach our goal of Ten Thousand dollars, we will be able to contract therapists and purchase play therapy resources that will have us on the road before the end of the year.
Fundraisers supporting usYou can start a fundraiser to have your own page that raises money directly for the beneficiary.
