Wish applications suspended

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) is currently impacting all our lives and this is likely to continue for some time. Starlight understands just how important wishes are for seriously ill children and their families, but the virus presents risks for those who are more vulnerable, which we need to consider in our response to it.

We have therefore taken the very difficult decision to stop accepting new wish applications. This will help us to manage the uncertainty and delays in granting existing wishes.

Unfortunately, this means that you can’t refer a child for a wish at the moment and we are unable to currently advise when this situation will change. Please do continue to monitor our website for further updates.
