Do you enjoy spending time with kids?

Radio Lollipop is an international charity organisation founded in 1979 to provide care, comfort, play and entertainment for children and young people, primarily in hospitals. The service to children and young people is provided entirely by Volunteers who have been especially selected, and trained to make a child’s stay in hospital more fun and less frightening.

The Radio Lollipop Volunteer teams make a positive difference in the lives of children. All receive full training and work closely with nursing and medical staff and hospital administrative staff to create fun, friendship and support for each individual patient.
