Transforming lives

Transforming lives, one wish at a time

How wishes help

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children aged between 3 and 17 who are living with critical illnesses.

Every year, hundreds of children turn to Make-A-Wish to transform their One True Wish into a life-changing reality.

We make the impossible, possible. When a child is referred to us, they're often going through gruelling treatment, endless medical appointments and time in hospital away from friends and family. But a wish can help bring them hope for the future, confidence and a better sense of well-being.

"It’s brought us all so much joy seeing Leah so happy. It’s one of those experiences she’ll never forget. Her wish has made her even more determined to be a teacher when she’s older, and made that dream all the more real for her."

Elaine, Wish mum
