About the Starlight Children's Foundation

Living with a serious illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families, with the everyday joys of childhood often taking a backseat to the stress of treatment and isolation.

It is with this in mind that the Starlight Children’s Foundation was formed in 1988 through the commitment and passion of prominent Australian business people, sporting personalities and healthcare professionals.

Since its inception Starlight has been delivering positive distraction programs that are designed to be an integral part of the total health care of seriously ill and hospitalised children.

Starlight's programs help to enhance the emotional well being of these children by giving them an opportunity to forget their illness for a while; to simply be kids, laugh, have fun and connect with other children.


Our hospital programs include Starlight Express Rooms, Starlight Fun Centres and Starlight Express Vans - geared to deliver fun and entertainment to hospitalised children around the country.

Out of hospital, Starlight's Wishgranting program grants wishes of children aged four to eighteen who suffer from any serious illness, and meet our criteria. While Starlight Escapes provide the children and their families with fun group outings and activities.

Starlight’s programs currently reach only '1 out of 3' of the 600,000 child admissions made to Australian hospitals each year. Our goal is to reach '3 out of 3' of these children who desperately need joy, light and laughter in their lives.
