We’re here to be the difference they need, and the difference they want.
The kind that takes care of it, the kind that takes their mind off it.

Our volunteer community supports families in the toughest of times – with a helping hand, a knowing smile or a welcome distraction.

We have a selection of volunteer roles designed to bring you face-to-face with precious moments in one of the world’s best paediatric hospitals.  Over one hundred volunteers work across the Queensland Children’s Hospital and Ellen Barron Family Centre – helping parents find their way to an appointment, providing a shoulder of support or entertaining kids at the bedside.
