Lady Lawley Cottage

Making a positive difference to the lives of children with a disability and their families.

Lady Lawley Cottage recognises that identifying the right supports for your child may be a challenging experience.

At Lady Lawley Cottage, we offer children and young people with disability a range of supports tailored to meet their individual needs, particularly when these needs have associated health or behaviour-related requirements. Our team works across two purpose-designed premises in Cottesloe and East Fremantle, providing a home-away-from-home experience.

Who we help

At Lady Lawley Cottage, we understand that no one knows your child better than you. Our team of professional staff puts children and young people at the centre of support by treating every child individually, and helping them exercise choice and control over many aspects of their lives in a safe and fun environment. We provide activities and social relationships to improve a child's quality of life and broaden their experiences.

Lady Lawley Cottage, Australian Red Cross, is a child-safe organisation. We recognise that children are one of the most vulnerable groups in society. We acknowledge that we have a critical responsibility to help keep children safe across all our operations and that at all times children have the right to be safe and protected.
