Paedspal plans to develop a strong base of volunteers to assist us in our mission to improve the lives of children with life-limiting illnesses and to support their families. As with any NGO providing services to vulnerable children, any volunteers working directly with children and family members need to undergo a recruitment process that includes police clearance, an interview and training programme.

Direct volunteer opportunities (these are volunteers working directly with children and families).

Clinic assistants: meet new patients at Red Cross or Stonefountain entrance, make tea and light meals, play with children in the waiting room, look after children while mothers are having counselling or aromatherapy.

Assistance with support group meetings as well as our annual memorial service.

Indirect volunteers:

Assistance with fundraising events, workshops, making up of care packs, bereavement cards, filing, photocopying etc.
