To brighten the lives of seriously ill children, young people and their families.
Because sick kids are still kids at heart...
When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood.
We know there’s more to treatment than medicine. That’s why since 1988, we’ve partnered with Australian health professionals to develop programs based on positive psychology principles that support the 'total care’ of our children and teens.
Like the young people in our care, we are distinctly Australian. Our unique programs are the result of extensive research and respond to the specific needs of Aussie kids and teens.
We know what kids and their families are facing when serious illness or injury consumes their lives.
We disrupt the relentless cycle of pain and trauma and offer a welcome break so that sick kids can simply be kids.
