Since its inauguration in March 2002, the NCCHD has hosted a variety of volunteer activities. Wearing distinct
orange uniforms, our volunteers welcome children and families to the hospital, putting them at ease and helping them wherever possible. As of January 2014, 250 members were enrolled in our volunteer program. Volunteers are able to participate in a wide range of useful jobs and activities when visiting the hospital, including:

Guiding external patients

Supporting visiting patients and providing guidance where necessary, accompanying patients around the hospital.
