Starlight Children's Foundation, Australia
- Innovative programs
- Integral to the total health care of children
- Brightening seriously ill children’s lives since 1988
Living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families. The everyday joys of childhood often take a backseat to the stress of treatment and isolation.
Since 1988 Starlight has delivered innovative programs within hospital environments, with the endorsement and support of the healthcare profession. Our programs are designed to be an integral part of the total health care of children.
These programs currently reach only ‘1 in 3’ of the 600,000 child admissions made to Australian hospitals each year. To achieve our mission we need to extend our program reach and utilise new technologies to increase connection and allow greater access to the proven benefits of Starlight programs. Starlight’s programs include: Starlight Express Rooms; Starlight Express Vans; Starlight Fun Centres; Starlight Escapes; Starlight Wishgranting; Club Ado and Livewire.
