Teachers Health recognised as a Diamond Supporter by Stewart House
Teachers Health is delighted to be recognised as a ‘Diamond Supporter’ by Stewart House – the charity’s highest sponsorship category. This honour acknowledges the donations and support made to Stewart House by Teachers Health over a number of years, and reflects our ongoing commitment to supporting the education community.
Stewart House, in Sydney’s northern beaches, supports 1,700 public school children in need each year. During their 12 day stay at Stewart House, the children from NSW and the ACT are provided with optical, dental and medical treatment and screening, as well as emotional support. This is balanced with health educational programs, excursions and activities to help develop social and emotional skills, build self-esteem and improve their overall wellbeing.
The infrastructure and staffing support for an on-site school is provided by the NSW Department of Education, but Stewart House relies on charitable donations to meet all other costs associated with the children’s stay.
Teachers Health has been actively involved with Stewart House for the past decade and we support its work in a number of ways. Much-needed monetary donations by Teachers Health include workplace giving, fundraising events, and matching dollar-for-dollar any donations made by our staff to the charity. Teachers Health also provides glasses or new lenses free of charge from our Health Centres for children who require them – around one in three of the children who visit Stewart House.
“Teachers Health has enjoyed a long association with Stewart House, providing both monetary donations and practical, often life-changing, help to the children who stay there. We’re very proud to support the work that Stewart House does in changing the lives of children in difficult circumstances, giving them hope and positive aspirations for the future. It’s an honour to be awarded Stewart House’s highest sponsorship category and be recognised as a Diamond Sponsor, and we look forward to helping many more children through Stewart House in the future,” said Brad Joyce, Teachers Health CEO.
