How Starlight helps
Across the UK over 100,000 children will spend their festive period in hospital. Starlight supports children in hospitals across the UK through the power of play in order to boost their wellbeing and resilience during treatment, care and recovery from illness. Children in hospital can experience fear, trauma and loss. Play reduces these feelings and creates positive memories.
Play has the power to relieve trauma and reduce a child’s anxiety and fear as they go through their treatment.
