When You Wish Upon a Star aims to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness from the age of 4 to 16 years.
We are able to grant the Wishes of hundreds of sick children and their families every year through community fundraising, corporate fundraising and donations. Our fundraisers work tirelessly to arrange events and to enable Wishes. You can help our fundraisers by volunteering or organising an event.
Children between 4 and 16 years of age living with a life threatening or terminal illness.
Children who have not had a Wish granted by another charity.
We are happy to receive initial enquires from parents/guardians or medical professionals.
When You Wish Upon a Star are happy to receive initial Wish enquiries from parents or guardians. Please contact us by phone 0115 9791720 or email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your child's name, age, address, medical condition, brief medical history and your contact telephone number.
Comprehensive checks are made between other Charities, ensuring that the one Wish per child criteria is met. A Wish Form, Medical Authorisation and Media Disclaimer will then be sent if the charity check cross reference is clear. In some instances the Wish Application may incorporate a home visit from our Wish Fairy.
