Pod Children’s Charity is a nationwide charity that organises entertainment for children in hospital.

POD Childrens Charity helps to alleviate the trauma of a hospital stay by sowing the seeds of fun, laughter and feeling better.

POD Childrens Charity magicians, puppeteers, musicians and clowns bring a little magic, fun and laughter into the lives of children in hospital. They give monthly shows in over 150 hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.

POD Childrens Charity has always believed that happy children get better quicker. When POD was founded in 1977 hospitals gave little thought to the emotional needs of sick children. Longer term hospital stays were more common. Visiting times for parents were restricted and outside stimulus for children in hospitals was almost unheard of.

Times have changed dramatically and POD Childrens Charity is proud to have been part of the progress in the thinking, attitude and approach to children in hospital.
