Northcott is the modern name for the New South Wales Society for Crippled Children, which ran the disability institution Beverley Park and the Margaret Reid Orthopaedic Hospital for Crippled Children. In 1995 the Society changed its name to the Northcott Society, in honour of Governor Northcott, a past patron. In 2012 the organisation called itself Northcott.
