UPDATE

On 20 March, NSW Premier Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced a massive reduction in car parking fees for patients and their carers who have to regularly visit hospital. For example, it means someone visiting a hospital once a week for a year will save $1,600.

We’re on a roll, so why stop now?

Join our campaign to make hospital parking costs cheaper across the country!

When your child is sick, the last thing you want to worry about is how expensive the hospital carpark is.

Parking your car at children’s hospitals around the country in some cases can cost you $30 a day.  This is often unaffordable for many parents, particularly those with kids who are receiving long-term treatment. 

$30 a day quickly adds up.

Currently, only hospitals in Victoria (and soon NSW) publicly advertise a discounted weekly pass ($60). All other hospitals charge by the day.

Many hospitals do offer some parking discounts for long-term patients, but these aren’t advertised and often parents are asked to prove they are in need. It shouldn’t be so hard. 

We’re not asking for much - we just want to see families going through a rough time have one less thing to worry about.  

Sign our petition to ease the cost burden on parents with sick kids.
