Routine is exchanged for fear and uncertainty and doctor's appointments replace school and sport causing enormous strain for the child, parents and siblings.
Since 1988 the Starlight Children's Foundation has delivered innovative programs within and outside of the hospital environment with the endorsement and support of the healthcare profession. These programs bring fun and laughter to children no matter what their illness or where they live.
Starlight's programs include:
- Starlight Express Rooms
- Starlight Wishgranting
- Starlight Fun Centres
- Starlight TV and Ado Programs
To achieve our mission to reach all seriously ill and hospitalised children, we need to extend our programs reach and utilise new technologies to increase connection and allow greater access to the proven benefits of Starlight's programs.
