​Virtual Visits and Giggle-a-Grams

Here at Theodora Children’s Charity, we know every child needs opportunities to play, no matter where they are. That’s why we launched Giggle Doctor Giggle Doctor Virtual Visits and Giggle-a-Grams. They’re free to book, accessible on your phone wherever you are, and completely tailored to the individual child.

So, how does it work?

Who are Virtual Visits and Giggle-a-Grams for?

Individually tailored to each child, Virtual Visits and Giggle-a-Grams can bring joy and laughter to any child:

  • Children receiving treatment or recovering at home

The magic of Virtual Visits and Giggle-a-Grams is that you can access them from anywhere! One parent told us:

I love it as not all seriously ill kids are in hospital but still having a very difficult time
  • Children receiving treatment for a long time

You can book once and receive a Virtual Visit or Giggle-a-Gram at the same time each week for 3 weeks

  • Children with Special Educational Needs

With training and experience working with children with special educational needs in person, our Giggle Doctors are great at connecting with children with all kinds of needs. Just let us know of any special communication needs when you book.

  • Any child who needs a chance to play!

Did you know?

Did you know that the Giggle Doctors are not in fact amazing volunteers as we are often asked - they are skilled and highly trained performers who spend two years qualifying to become Giggle Doctors.

We are proud that whether you have a Virtual Visit or a Giggle Doctor visit in hospital it is no cost to the families, which means all children have the chance to experience the same fun and laughter. It is thanks to the donations of kind supporters that enables us to pay our Giggle Doctors for their time and services. We are very grateful for any donation you are able to make.
