NHS Volunteer Responders: self referral and becoming an approved referrer
NHS Volunteer Responders service is now open for self referral. If somebody needs additional support with tasks such as shopping or picking up prescriptions, or would like a check in and chat call, or needs transportation to healthcare appointments, they can get in touch with the Royal Voluntary Service on 0808 196 3646 (8am to 8pm).
You can help to promote this service by displaying or sharing the poster, available here.
Further information about the self referral process and who is eligible for support is available here.
Charities that wish to directly support their clients who are vulnerable and may need support at this time, can become approved referrers so that they can make referrals on behalf of their clients / members. If you would like to become an approved referrer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will contact you to discuss further.
