Starlight’s work in Hammersmith

Starlight is a national charity that works on a local level.

We grant wishes for seriously and terminally ill children and teenagers in Hammersmith. We also work with hospitals in the Hammersmith area, including Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and the Royal Brompton Hospital, to provide a year-round entertainment programme.

These programmes aim to improve a child’s hospital stay by using entertainment and distraction therapy – a method of helping a child cope with procedures by focusing on something else.
