Who Can Refer a Child

When You Wish Upon A Star are happy to receive initial enquires from Parents/Guardian and Medical Professionals.

The Next Stage

When You Wish Upon A Star will make direct contact with the Parent/Guardian to send a Wish Form and Medical Authorisation for completion and in some instances, this may incorporate a visit from our Wish Fairy. Upon the relevant forms being received fully completed along with a recent photo of the child, a letter will be sent to the Medical Consultant to confirm the child fits the charities criteria. On receipt of the Medical advice, the Wish Fairy will liaise with the Parent/Guardian with regard to the Wishes.
