Clown Doctors

The Clown Doctors is an innovative programme offering hospitalised children opportunities to take part in artistic play.  It aims to relieve them of fear and insecurities and to empower the children to understand and come to terms with their situation at a traumatic time in their lives.

The Clown Doctors work with children aged 6 months to 16 years and within a wide range of medical departments wherever there are young people. Activities are age-specific and ability-specific so each child has their own unique experience with the Clown Doctors.

The Children’s Foundation are raising money to ensure the Clown Doctors reach as many children as possible in the Great North Children’s Hospital.
