Brightening the lives of hospitalised children, young people and their families, the Starlight Children's Foundation delivers fun-filled and innovative programs at the Royal Children's Hospital seven days a week.
Starlight's programs provide a much needed, positive distraction for children and young people during one of the most challenging periods of their life. Centred on the social model of health, Starlight's programs recognise the role of play, fun and social interaction, ensuring children build resilience while still enjoying themselves.
"Starlight lets you experience what's
great in life when other things aren't so good. Even though I was very
sick, with Starlight I could still enjoy myself and have fun. That's
what life is about - living in the moment." (Starlight child).
