This Christmas, we continue our commitment to transforming rehabilitation for local kids.
The 2023 Bendigo Health Christmas Appeal is dedicated to helping raise the remaining funds required to build a remarkable play space to support paediatric patients undergoing rehabilitation.
A children's rehab play space was imagined two years ago and after many months of design, fundraising and planning, the specialised nature-based play space is almost a reality.
Donate now to transform rehabilitation for local kids.
Supporting children like Montana

Helping children from our region
More than 100 children are treated by Bendigo Health’s rehabilitation services at any one time.
Two-thirds of the children receiving rehabilitation at Bendigo Health have cerebral palsy – a permanent condition with no known cure.
To support their rehabilitation therapy, we are funding the build of an all abilities outdoor play space as part of the redevelopment of the Clinical Services Campus on Lucan Street, a place to use during therapy sessions and other times when they just wish to play.
Transforming rehabilitation for local kids
Designed by the award-winning Jeavons Landscape Architects, the kids rehab play space will serve as an outdoor extension of the newly developed Clinical Services Campus specifically for children’s rehabilitation.
Every donation to this year’s Bendigo Health Christmas Appeal will help raise the remaining funds we need to build a remarkable play space to support paediatric patients undergoing rehabilitation.
The space was imagined two years ago and Bendigo Health’s Fundraising & Foundation department has worked hard to raise the funds needed. We kick-started the fundraising through last year’s Christmas Appeal and, combined with other philanthropic support, next year, we could break ground.
We need your help to make rehab fun.
