Starlight Children's Foundation brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, throughout Australia.
- Type:DGR 1 Status
- Charity:Child Welfare,Family,Fundraising,Local Community,Mental Health
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.
Starlight provides programs integral to the total care of seriously ill children – while health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again.
"You hear laughter walking down the corridor before you see the kids."
