Volunteering at LauraLynn Ireland's Children's Hospice

LauraLynn is Ireland’s only children’s hospice and we rely heavily on our amazing team of volunteers. 

There are so many ways to get involved. From once off assisting at a fundraising event to regular weekly volunteering on site, there are many different ways to volunteer your time. Your time and support will help us provide vital care to Ireland’s most vulnerable children and their families.  Below are some ways to get involved.


Become a Registered Volunteer

Volunteers are a key members of TeamLauraLynn. We have a team of volunteers that help us to enhance the services provided here in LauraLynn. From working directly with our children and young adults to providing admin support or driving, volunteers are active in every department and work closely with our staff to provide the best possible service. Our registered volunteers support us both on and off site helping to create magical moments for the children and young adults in our care.


Volunteering for a children’s hospice is not for everyone and can be a challenging environment but we do have a variety of roles to suit many skills and interests. Whether it is interacting with the children and young adults or helping us raise vital funds to support the hospice, we appreciate your support. To join the team, you will need to complete the application process which includes Garda Vetting, Reference Checks and Induction Training where you will meet with our Volunteer Coordinator. This process can take up to 3 months with more training required if you are accepted as a volunteer and assigned a role with us.
