Start Fundraising Today!

A stay in hospital for any child can be stressful and very frightening not only for the child but also for the parents. Every day, Children in Hospital Ireland volunteers provide activities and play for children of all ages in 14 paediatric units around the country.

Your funds will:

  • Support much-needed art supplies, games and toys and will help to ensure we have adequate supplies throughout the year for all of the 14 hospitals in which we provide a play service.
  • Recruit, train, vet and support our team of 500 volunteers around the country.
  • Developing information and supports for parents who have a child who requires hospitalisation.

Children in Hospital Ireland are fully compliant with the Charities Regulator’s Governance Code.
