Our hospital services

Life in hospital isn’t easy, especially when you’re young. Suddenly you find yourself in a strange and lonely place full of unfamiliar sights and sounds. It can be really scary, so we support frontline health staff and arrange Boost Boxes, Distraction Boxes, pantomimes and our Starlight Play Week to help seriously ill children be themselves and feel less alone.
