Volunteering with Starlight
Make sick kids smile
By volunteering with Starlight, you'll make a real difference to the lives of seriously ill children. You'll also discover hidden talents, be inspired, meet new people and be rewarded with a deep sense of fulfilment.
Make a meaningful contribution. Make someone's day.
You can get involved with fundraising events, in hospital programs such as the Starlight Express Room, Livewire, Wishgranting or you can donate your professional skills. Other opportunities include putting your public speaking skills to good use as a community speaker, or furthering your career with an internship at Starlight.
There is a special camaraderie within Starlight and as a volunteer you feel part of a massive team doing a lot of good.Catherine, Starlight volunteer
We match your individual strengths to the right volunteer opportunity and we're flexible - allocating you only as many hours as you can commit to.
We provide you with essential training, either face-to-face or online, so you'll be equipped to have a positive Starlight experience.
Don't forget to access My Starlight, our online community dedicated to connecting, informing and inspiring our valued Starlight volunteers.
Please note: With the exception of helping at events, our volunteer opportunities require an ongoing weekly or monthly commitment. If you're not currently in a position to commit your time on an ongoing basis, there are many other ways you can support Starlight.
