Day One offers a Peer Support programme which involves former patients connecting with current patients. These individuals have travelled the trauma journey and kindly donate their time to speak and support patients. They do this by sharing their own experiences and talking about whatever the patient would like to discuss, this could be from operations, to life after trauma, to the weather forecast. Many patients find it beneficial to speak to someone who has been in a similar position to themselves, rather than a health professional or friends and family.
Day One peer support volunteers also spend time on the wards and at outpatients clinics visiting patients, making tea and coffee and supporting the Day One team.
If you are interested in volunteering for Day One please contact Becky Baldaro Booth: Day One Development Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07507 065 795
