The Clown Doctors Programme The Clown Doctors Programme

The Clown Doctors visit sick children in hospital to support them through what can be a traumatic and frightening time. Fear, boredom, loss of control and other insecurities can adversely affect children in hospitals, and the Clown Doctors offer an impartial way of entertaining, supporting and empowering the children who may be struggling with these issues. Performing arts such as storytelling, music, improvisation and clowning are used to engage the children and to help them come to terms with their situation using humour and play.
