About Us

**2014 BRW - Best Places to Work - Starlight Children's Foundation

**2014 AON Hewitt Best Employer - Starlight Children's Foundation

For over 25 years, Starlight Children's Foundation has supported the well-being of Australian families facing hospitalisation and serious illness. We are the only children's charity with a permanent presence in every major paediatric hospital. 

Starlight employs over 100 performers, as our in-hospital superheroes, the Captain Starlights.  The Captains deliver innovative artistic programs to hospitalised children though imagination, creativity, play and fun.  They come from a diverse background in the arts: visual artists, stand ups, actors, musicians and more.  Our Outreach program delivers tailored entertainment to indigenous communities throughout NT and smaller regional centres.

Starlight works closely with health professionals, and is now regarded by health leaders to be, " integral part of the 'total' care of hospitalised children." (Professor Les White - NSW Chief Paediatrician)

We believe in importance of play for children.  Starlight believes the arts can play a big part in the improving the wellbeing of hospitalised kids and their families.

We are very keen to explore further opportunities with organisations and freelancers in any discipline of the Arts. 

Our mission: To brighten the lives of seriously-ill kids and their families.
