NHS and Care Volunteer Responders
NHS and Care Volunteer Responders is a flexible volunteering programme supporting the NHS and adult social care across England.
The programme is in an exciting new phase and continues to evolve with new services being introduced. Our enthusiastic volunteers take on a range of activities to support the NHS and people drawing on social care. We're working with the NHS and care providers to make sure the activities provide the maximum benefit to those who need support.
Health and care teams can refer people for Check In and Chat and Check In and Chat Plus friendly telephone calls. They can also request Pick Up and Deliver support (formerly NHS Transport) with the delivery of medication and supplies and Steward Volunteers at vaccination sites.
Members of the public can request friendly phone calls from volunteers, either for themselves or someone they know (with that person's permission).
