Our support for children

At Starlight, we help seriously ill children in hospital play, laugh and do the things they love. With our Boost Boxes, Distraction Boxes, Events and Experiences and more, we help children forget their worries and feel the joy of childhood.

Today, the support we offer has never been needed more; from Isolation Packs to safely provide items to distract and delight children in hospital, to hosting virtual parties to entertain and keep children connected with others

Children need to play. It’s about much more than having fun. It’s how kids learn, communicate and figure out who they are.

The support Starlight have given us has been so heart-warming and vital. It means so much that there are people that understand the massive effort it is to just try and function as a working family with such profound disabilities.

When nurses need to cheer up a child in hospital, they reach for a Starlight Boost Box. But what’s inside?
