About the Event

In this webinar, find out more about an excellent example of this - the NHS and care Volunteer Responders programme. 

This programme provides Social Prescribers and other healthcare professionals with available, appropriately checked volunteers to help patients and people who need additional support in the community. Over 40,000 volunteers are ready to help. Services include friendly phone calls, picking up and delivering prescriptions and shopping and providing support for people to enjoy a range of activities in the home or in their community; all of which we know can improve the health and wellbeing of those in need of social prescribing. 

Sign up to this webinar to find out more about the programme, how referrers have been supported by it and how you can make a referral. Hear examples of how Volunteer Responders have met the needs of referrers and supported Social Prescribers, and how to connect to the provision in your area. 

Speakers: Chair, Monica Boulton, Healthcare Integration Lead at the National Academy for Social Prescribing. Oliver Clark, Project Manager at NHS and Care Volunteer Responders. Jen Williams, Regional Relationship Manager at NHS and Care Volunteer Responders.
