​Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice

The Manly Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice (AYAH) is Australia’s first dedicated service for young people with life-limiting illness. The service is for 16 to 30-year-old patients with life-limiting illness and offers respite care, symptom management, end-of-life care, and care coordination support in the transition from children’s to adult services.

Located on a portion of the former Manly Hospital site on the North Head headland, the AYAH provides​ holistic, specialised care for patients and their families. The facility is surrounded by national parks, bushland and environmental conservation areas, providing a natural and peaceful setting for young people and their families.​​
