The $19.5 million Manly Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice (AYAH) will be Australia’s first dedicated service for young people with life-limiting illness. The service will be for 15 to 24-year-old patients with life-limiting illness and will offer respite care, symptom management and end of life care.
Located on the former Manly Hospital site on the North Head headland, the AYAH will provide specialised care for families, including bereavement support and counselling. The hospice will be surrounded by national parks, bushland and environmental conservation areas, providing a natural and peaceful setting for young people and their families.
The Manly AYAH development has been made possible through generous donations from the community and funding committed by the Australian and NSW Governments. This partnership will continue once the hospice’s doors open, with the NSW Government committing $2 million per year towards operating costs and supporting ongoing community fundraising.
