Since being formed as an Australian childrens charity in 1988, the Starlight Children’s Foundation has brightened the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, throughout Australia.
Living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families. The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives, and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.
Starlight provides programs integral to the total care of seriously ill children, while health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child. Giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again.
The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service started from humble beginnings in Sydney in 1973 as a basic beach surveillance and rescue service, the Southern Region Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) Helicopter Rescue Service has developed into the largest non-profit search and rescue aviation service in Australia.
Today the Southern Region Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service is on standby ready to fly emergency and other missions 365 days a year, and operates from a purpose built hangar and base at Cape Banks on the northern headland of Botany Bay and Moruya Airport on the NSW south coast.
The aircraft are made available for tasking by emergency service groups, including the State Emergency Service, NSW Police Force, Fire Authorities, Surf Lifesaving and others, for the benefit of the people of Sydney and South Coast regions.
