About Theodora Children’s Charity
Theodora Children’s Charity is a truly inspirational and pioneering charity which successfully works to improve children’s experience of being in hospital.
Our Giggle Doctors increase opportunities for play, reduce distress and anxiety and give children back a sense of control during their medical care. They achieve this through improvised play which puts the child at the centre of the interaction and using music, magic, storytelling, comedy and mime.
About the role
Giggle Doctors are the public face of Theodora Children’s Charity and deliver our unique service to children in hospitals, specialist care centres and occasionally other settings.
As a Giggle Doctor, you will adopt a playful approach to creating meaningful encounters for our beneficiaries: children and their families, healthcare teams and other staff working in our partner organisations. Drawing on play and performance techniques including magic, music, mime, storytelling, clowning, singing, improvisation, and puppetry, you will create authentic moments of connection which allow children to express themselves.
