Welcome to Leeds Teddy Bear Hospital

Latest News

20th October - We have just had our very first visit of the year! Thank you so much to all the lovely volunteers who attended. Remember you can buy a membership for free on the LUUengage website and this will put you on the mailing list! All future news and visit sign ups will be emailed out.

Teddy Bear Hospital is a fun project run by students, working with children between 4 and 8 years old. We aim to promote healthy living and alleviate concerns about hospitals and doctors through fun activities and play.

Our team of volunteer students from the University of Leeds run health education workshops at primary schools, beavers and brownies groups across West Yorkshire. The workshops last for approximately an hour and consist of around six volunteer-led teaching stations that children rotate around. These cover a variety of health-related topics in fun and interactive ways.

One of our most popular stations is surgery, where the children dress up in scrubs and pretend to be surgeons as we open up our big teddy bear and have a look at the organs inside. Other stations include healthy eating, X-ray, doctors consultation, dentistry and anatomy.

For Volunteers

We welcome students from all courses and all year groups who have a passion and interest in teaching children and making a real difference in the local community. You don't need any background knowledge either - we provide all the training and we'll help you out when you're on the visits.
