Case studies and testimonials

We fund multiple applications every year. Here are just a few examples of applications that we've funded:


Finley has brain damage and Cerebal Palsy. He uses his wheelchair at school in the afternoons and on school and family trips out as his legs start hurting and he becomes unable to walk. We funded a new lightweight wheelchair enabling Finley to have continued independence at school and out with family and friends.



We bought a specialist Car Seat for Teddy who has two rare genetic
conditions affecting his mobility.  
One affects some of his muscles, causing weakness and tightening in his legs and the other is a genetic condition resulting in severe learning difficulties including being non-verbal.We funded a car seat to provide full bodily support and security. The base swivels enabling ease of access and reduction in discomfort for both him and his parents.

Specialist Car Seat


We funded a specialist Trike for a Harry who has Cerebal Palsy and has no use of his right arm or hand, autistic spectrum disorder, epilepsy and moderate learning difficulties. The Trike not only helps with Harry's physio, to strengthen his right leg, but also means that he can join in cycling activities and have fun with his friends and family.

Specialist Trike


We funded an Assistive Puppy for Evan who has autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, low muscle tone, moderate learning difficulties and global development delay. The dog (who Evan has named Cooper) is being trained (Please note Starburst has not funded the training) to specifically support Evan to help calm him and aide him in his independence. Once fully trained, Cooper will respond to Evan’s repetitive behaviours and ticks, give comfort when anxious and help build Evan’s confidence and focus.

Thank you for giving our daughter what we could not! I just can't thank you and your colleagues enough, not only for this, but also for making the process fast, easy and stress free. When we are in the position to, we'll be giving back to this charity who has given us so much!
