Do you have three hours to spare every week? Are you 18 years or over? Are you great with children? Radio Lollipop is an international children’s charity providing care, comfort, play and entertainment to sick children and their families in hospital. It is run 100% by local volunteers who coordinate and deliver fun play activities at children’s bedsides and in our playroom.

Radio Lollipop operates from the children's ward at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital and Mater Private Children`s Hospital. Volunteers run fully equipped radio stations, visit children at their bedsides, involve them and their families in play activities and use the magic of radio when they need it most. Sessions operate Monday to Friday from 5 - 7.30pm and Saturday mornings from 9am - 11.30am.

At Logan Hospital we operate a satellite station that connects with our broadcast centres and offers ward-visiting, play and entertainment to children on Tuesday 5-7:30pm and Saturday 9am - 11:30am.

We pride ourselves on providing a professional and reliable service to the children we visit, and rely on volunteers who are conscientious, reliable and have the ability to make a weekly commitment. If you have time to give, and are looking for a fun and rewarding volunteering experience, please express your interest in this opportunity using the link below.

All applicants who register their interest via the Seek website will be invited to attend an information session at the hospital. It is at the information session that we will be able to provide you with more information about this volunteering opportunity as well as more information about our organisation.

To become a volunteer you must attend an information night, submit an application and be available for an interview. To register your interest email us now.

The next round of volunteer intakes will commence late August / Sept (exact dates to be confirmed). Enquire today and all detailed information will be sent to you in the coming months.
