Children in Hospital Ireland: Play Volunteers

Play Volunteers: Children in Hospital Ireland (Waterford & Kilkenny)

Location: Waterford and Kilkenny

Do you have 2-3 hours to spare in the mornings, afternoons or evenings?

Would you like to make hospital a happier place for a sick child?

Children in Hospital Ireland (CHI) would love to hear from you.

CHI is one of Ireland’s leading children’s charities providing play and fun for sick children in hospital around the country for over 45 years. Children need the opportunity to play wherever they are and as a play volunteer you make this happen.

We need your help to organise play activities for hospitalised children, from painting, helping with jigsaws or board games to simple arts & crafts or reading stories.
