Third Sector Leaders Kirklees has been commissioned to undertake an evaluation of the national NHS Responders Programme in Kirklees and explore how it can be integrated at a local level.
We will be undertaking interviews with volunteers, beneficiaries, referrers and local delivery organisations (who have been offering similar support during the pandemic) in the Kirklees area. We want to hear from:
- People who registered to be an NHS Volunteer (even if they didn’t become one)
- People who chose not to register or chose to volunteer in some other way
- People or groups who referred people for help from an NHS Volunteer (or other local support services offering things like shopping, prescription deliver, patient transport, befriending and phone call services)
- Groups who have been offering similar support services.
The information we collect, along with analysis of local data, will be summarised in an evaluation report which will be shared with NHS England and NHS Improvement.
If you have been involved in the scheme in the Kirklees area, or have some views about it that you’d like to share (via a quick phone or video call), we would be keen to hear from you! (We can offer a high street voucher as a thank you to individuals taking part, if necessary.)
Please contact Becky Bracey, email@example.com before the end of February.
