Starlight's mission is to brighten the lives of all seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families, throughout Australia.
Living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families. The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives, and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.
Physical recovery is only part of the solution. Starlight delivers programs designed to make children happy and lift their spirits when they need it most. Starlight brings fun and
laughter to children no matter what their illness or where they live.
Since 1988, Starlight has been providing services Australia wide to help seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, throughout Australia. Starlight programs are
delivered both in and out of hospital, providing positive distraction to children in their time of need.
Starlight relies entirely on the support of the community and the generosity of supporters. There are many ways you can help Starlight, through your workplace, with friends, community group or on your own!
