"Befriending & Volunteering with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a staff member),

Today was the first Befriending and Volunteering Club meeting held at Millbrook Mental Health unit, Mansfield. A few people attended and a special presentation was made to one volunteer who has retired from volunteering for after 15 years. Among other things the group spoke about what they wanted from the club, how often they should meet and who they would like to come to speak to them. It was decided to invite speakers from the Recovery Education Centre and the Involvement Centres as all were interested in finding out how to get more involved with the Trust. They we're also issued with the new yellow volunteering badges.

The next meeting is to be held on Wednesday 14th December at 3pm all welcome.

If you would like to donate yourself to Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust as a Volunteer or Befriender please call on 0115 9529424.
