How long has the party been going?

What sort of children attend?

The Special Children's Christmas Parties have been running for more than 25 years. Each year our events get bigger and better with new and exciting entertainment and toys for the children. Our events are now regarded as the biggest events of their kind in Australia for special needs children.

We work closely with hundreds of charities, schools, community groups and government organisations throughout Australia to select these special children. The children invited are children who suffer from one of the following: serious illnesses, physical or intellectual impairment, domestic violence, or living in underprivileged circumstances.

Where do you source the children from?

I have children that are eligible to attend the party, where can I find out more information?

We contact hundreds of schools, government and charitable organisations who deal with these children on a daily or weekly basis. For example special needs schools, special education units, leukaemia foundation, cancer society, cerebral palsy league, women's refuges, department of families and shelters and many, many more organisations that deal with special needs children. Due to the privacy act, we are not allowed to know the names of children who attend, so we rely on the department heads of organisations such as these to submit children in their care. Around June of each year, we contact schools, special schools, government and charitable organisations. They are provided with a username and password to access our registration system and it's up to them to request an invitation. We are not allowed to send them to the general public as we have to rely on the above sources, who work with your child on a daily, weekly or montly basis. Your first point of contact should be your school. If your school or local organisation hasn't heard about the Christmas Party, please direct them to this page.
