Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia. Unfortunately, thousands of these children are then faced with a diagnosis that can change their life, and the lives of their family, forever. Starlight’s mission is to transform the experience of these children by replacing pain, fear and boredom with fun, joy and laughter.
Starlight programs are integral to the total care of seriously ill children and young people – while health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to focus on the child – lifting their spirits, giving them an opportunity to laugh and play, building resilience and improving their wellbeing.
Starlight is the only children’s charity with a permanent presence in the seven major paediatric hospitals around Australia. We grant once in a lifetime Starlight Wishes that provide the sickest children with something to look forward to and create memories to last forever. In regional Australia our programs have improved attendance at clinics and enhanced the effectiveness of health promotion programs in remote and indigenous communities. For older children, we have Livewire – a safe online & in-hospital community where adolescents can meet other kids their age who are dealing with similar experiences.
