Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight’s mission is to brighten the lives of seriously ill children, teenagers and their families.


Since 1988, Starlight Children's Foundation has brightened the lives of sick children by turning pain, fear and stress into fun, joy and laughter. Starlight is the broadest reaching children’s charity in Australia and last year helped over 185,000 sick kids and their families. Starlight helps sick kids of all ages, regardless of their illness or injury.

There is a Starlight Express Room in every children’s hospital across the country and over 100 Captain Starlights deliver a healthy dose of fun and laughter to sick kids every day! Starlight also supports sick teens through their innovative Livewire program and last year granted over 500 Starlight Wishes.
