Our work in the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children

We’ve been providing books and stories to the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, Belfast since 2013.

There’s a strong sense of community at the Royal Belfast Hospital, ensuring young patients feel welcome and secure. Children and their families are enthralled by the enchanting stories from our highly experienced storyteller, Steve, whose Irish tales help children to escape their hospital walls.

Our books are invaluable to the children and families on all of the different wards in Belfast, from the Musgrave Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service unit to Paediatric Intensive Care:

“I delivered some of the pre-school and board books to the Paediatric Intensive Care. Very, very few parents bring books with them to read to their child. For many of these infants or pre-schoolers this could be their very first own book! Isn’t that wonderful? Thank you very much.”

We love working in Belfast!

“Steve was extra brilliant today. He had three boys who haven’t laughed in a while doubled over….it was fantastic. He made a difference to some little lives today.”
