Our wishes give seriously ill children the chance to do something extraordinary. For many children, a wish is an opportunity to do something they never thought possible when life is tough. Children's wishes can range from being a princess for the day or meeting their hero, to going on a once-in-a-lifetime family holiday. Whatever each child's wish is, we make the experience a truly individual and memorable one.

To have their wish granted, a child needs to be aged between 3 and 17 years, and living with a life-threatening medical condition. The child’s treating consultant makes the final determination of whether the child is medically eligible to receive a wish and whether the child is able to participate in the wish.
Conditions that generally qualify children for a wish include, but are not limited to, various forms of cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and those in need of organ transplants. Children with chronic conditions like cerebral palsy, Crohn’s disease or spina bifida may qualify if their conditions are coupled with other complications and the combination is considered life-threatening.
A child needs to have reached their 3rd birthday before they can apply. Teenagers should apply before their 18th birthday.
