An Ireland where the rights of children are respected and prioritised within the healthcare system.
Our mission is to promote the wellbeing of children within the healthcare system in Ireland, in particular, before, during and after hospitalisation. In order to fulfil our mission, we aim to provide information and support to parents and carers and to engage in advocacy in relation to healthcare services for children. In addition, we aim to make the hospital a happier place for children and young people by providing volunteer-led play and recreation services.
Our Values: The work of Children in Hospital Ireland is firmly rooted in and inspired by the lived experience of children in hospital and their families and the knowledge and insights of our volunteers, staff and members.
