Your gift of time makes all the difference

Our dedicated volunteers are there to offer a helping hand to families, provide a welcome distraction with fun and games, and bring a smile to the face of a sick child.

Our volunteers work across all areas of the hospital – helping families find their way to an appointment, providing a shoulder of support, or entertaining kids at the bedside.

" Volunteers are a big help to families whose worlds have been turned upside down by a sudden illness or injury to their child.."

Different ways to volunteer

Volunteering with Children’s Hospital Foundation is a highly rewarding experience. It brings you face-to-face with precious moments and offers you a variety of jobs to do. The contribution of our volunteers is invaluable.

Help families to cope, and support parents, carers and sick children on an emotional and at times uncertain journey. You will bring reassurance and laughter into their world and make traumatic procedures more bearable.

Currently around 450 volunteers perform vital work at the children’s hospital.

If you want to make a real difference in the lives of sick kids and their families, please contact us about becoming a volunteer.
