Reference nr. 2399 : Radio Lolllipop NZ
Radio Lollipop Volunteer

Radio Lollipop supports children and their families/whanau by providing care, comfort and play, through activities and games for children on Ward 2 at the Whangarei Base Hospital from 6.00pm - 8.15pm.  Volunteers would attend one or two sessions per week. 

We process at least two New Volunteer Intakes per year. Typically these are held at the beginning of the year February/March and mid year around June/July. Full training will be provided before you visit children on the wards as well as an annual refresher session.

  • Training sessions must be completed to become a volunteer.
  • A medical questionnaire and a police check need to be completed because the volunteers are working in the hospital environment with children.

Specific requirements
Each volunteer brings their own unique strengths / imaginations to children in hospital. You will need to be adaptable and sensitive to provide times of quiet play and times of more upbeat fun with a wide range of age groups (babies through to teenagers).

You will be required to be a team player with a good understanding of hospital and Radio Lollipop expectations.

All volunteers are required to: Attend an Information Evening - this gives us the opportunity to give you a better understanding of Radio Lollipop and what's expected of our volunteers.

Applicants requirements:

  • Attend an Information Evening
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Agree to NZ Police Vetting
  • Vaccinations be up to date
