Support from schools

We want to support schools and youth groups by inspiring children and young people to develop a lifelong aspiration for helping others. At Shooting Star Children’s Hospices we love innovative and creative fundraising, filled with enthusiasm, understanding and most of all fun! This helps to create a lasting, positive experience and to ensure that children and young people enjoy supporting charities for life.


Our hospices are fun and vibrant, just like a nursery environment. By having fun with a themed fundraiser at your nursery, you can ensure we can continue to offer support to the children and families we care for.

Schools and colleges

As a teacher, finding time and resources to support charities can be tough, but our Community Fundraising Team can support you with help, ideas or an assembly.


We understand your time is limited with studying, essays and exams but there are so many ways that you can get involved. And helping us also helps you; we can offer you opportunities to gain great experience in a variety of areas, which all helps towards a fabulous CV!

Extracurricular groups

Scouts and Guides

We would love to support your Scouts and Guides in working towards their next badge while they support us in helping make every moment count for life-limited children, and their families.

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

If you’re looking for ideas to complete your DofE award, we have a wide range of fundraising and volunteering opportunities available, and by helping us you will be making a real difference to local families.

Resources for teachers and parents

Support for schools

If your school has a pupil who is a supported child, supported sibling or bereaved sibling that uses our service, we can offer your staff specialist support from our therapists and counsellors.
