The Stella Bella Little Stars Foundation aims to brighten the lives of children – and their families – who are living with serious and long term illnesses in the ACT.

The organisation has already offered support and assistance to 700 local families, delivering a wide range of programs including respite care, financial support and bereavement support. Many of the children the organisation supports have chronic and life-limiting medical conditions, with limited access to learning and socialisation.


2019 Pitch

Funds raised: $28,990

At TFN Live Canberra, Suzanne Tunks spoke of the social isolation and limited learning opportunities children with chronic and life-threatening conditions have. She was pitching for funding to enable these children to attend school with a specialised support worker by their side.
