STARboard

Children and Young People's Board

We're delighted to launch STARboard, our very own Children and Young People’s Board!

At Make-A-Wish UK, our aim is to be a child-led organisation. That's why we’ve launched STARboard. 

For the first time ever, the young people at the heart of our wishes will now be at the heart of our organisation - helping to move Make-A-Wish forward to be the best it can be.

From Spring 2020, the brand-new STARboard will bring together a small group of young people from across the UK who’ve had a wish in the last two years and volunteered to represent their region and fellow wish families in order to help Make-A-Wish better serve its communities.

A STARboard member’s role is to be the voice of our wish children. From advising the charity on important decisions, to supporting local events and sharing views and opinions, there’ll be lots to do. There’ll also be plenty of opportunities for self-development, learning and socialising!
It's a very important role, but it’s fun too.
