Bedside Play Volunteers

Volunteer on the Paediatric wards of King’s College Hospital or Evelina London Children’s Hospital and brighten up a child’s day! You will be fully equipped with Bob-the-Builder Playbelts filled with pens, pencils, crayons play-doh, bubbles and more! 

No shift will ever be the same, but you will leave each one with a smile! :) 

Open to all KCL Students

What do you get? The opportunity to relive your childhood! But aside from that – the most important part of the scheme is that it benefits the children and their families. If you volunteer for a full 12 months you will get a certificate which you can then keep and use for your future career!

Commitment required: 2 hours fortnightly in your allocated shift for a minimum of 6 months. 

Shifts are weekdays (6pm-8pm) and weekends (10am-12pm and 3pm-5pm). Evening shifts are in great demand, so being available for a regular weekend shift will help you get on the wards faster! 

*NOTE: Evelina is weekend only*
