Compassion, Empathy & Resilience: Virtues in Volunteering

  • Aidan Thompson (Speaker)

Activity: Academic and Industrial eventsConference, workshop or symposium


The Jubilee Centre has recently collaborated with Radio Lollipop, an international charity that gives young people a voice and a choice during their stay in hospital. The Centre is delighted to work with Radio Lollipop, who has over 35 years’ experience of providing care, comfort, play and entertainment to young people in hospital. In April 2017, Radio Lollipop held their UK Training Weekend on the theme of ‘Compassion, Empathy, & Resilience’ of volunteers in hospitals. As Director of Strategy and Integration and Radio Lollipop Trustee, I spoke at the conference about the importance of each of these virtues in hospital settings, as well as considering the tools required to help us develop good practice. This presentation will feature a film that captures personal stories of Radio Lollipop volunteers, which focus on each of the three virtues that the conference sought to promote.
