Apply for A Wish

Anyone can refer a child for a Starlight Wish – parents, grandparents, medical professionals, friends, social workers… Simply complete the online wish application form below or download a PDF version, complete and return to us by post.

Whatever the wish, Starlight will make it happen

Our wish granters will go above and beyond to plan the best possible experience for each child and create precious, unforgettable memories for the whole family to share, laugh and smile about. We deal with every organisational detail and ensure that no additional burden is placed on parents.

Who can apply?

Starlight grants wishes for children who are:

  • 4 -18 years old (inclusive)
  • Suffering from a life-threatening illness or a life-shortening illness
  • Able to choose and communicate (verbally or non-verbally) their greatest wish for themselves
  • UK residents
Please note: If the child has already had a wish granted by another organisation, they are sadly not eligible for a Starlight Wish.

If you are having trouble filling out the form or have any questions, please call us on 020 7262 2881.
