Stewart House

Teachers Health is proud to support Stewart House. Each year, 1,800 public school children in need from NSW and the ACT visit Stewart House in Sydney’s northern beaches. During their stay, children are provided with optical, dental and medical treatment as well as emotional support. This is balanced with health and education programs at an onsite school and out of school activities to promote a healthier lifestyle. The NSW Department of Education and Communities provides infrastructure and staffing support for the school and all other costs associated with the children’s stay are met from charitable donations. Teachers Health Fund supports the work of Stewart House by providing glasses or new lenses free of charge from our Health Centres for children that require them. For the children who receive glasses for the first time, it can be a life-changing experience and Teachers Health is delighted that we can help in such a practical way.
