Our House becomes a home away from home for families who have a child being treated for a serious or life threatening illness.
Staff and volunteers attend to the daily operation of the House and ensure families are given the support they need during their stay with us, enabling families to stay together as a unit in a warm and caring homelike environment during this very emotional time.
Our families travel from all over including country Victoria, interstate, metropolitan Melbourne and overseas.
The Rotary Club of Carlton has for more than thirty years, provided a forum for like-minded individuals to meet, in a convivial atmosphere and to discuss ways to help local and overseas communities.
At our weekly meeting we are able to listen to interesting speakers, and through our various committees plan strategies to help the less fortunate members of our world.
We do this by using our skills and contacts, as well as raising funds.

Rotarians worldwide are inspired by the Rotary theme of “Service Above Self” and are guided by reference to ‘The Four-Way Test’. In particular, ‘The Four-Way Test’ challenges Rotarians, in everything they do, to ask of themselves:
“Of the things we think say or do:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"
