Organisation : Volunteer Centre Edinburgh
Grant Amount : £ 94,536

Co-productive volunteer engagement will be significantly developed in the REH, adding value to existing NHS services. The health, wellbeing and social capital of patients and the wider community will benefit.

The project will

  1. Support in-patients with severe/enduring mental illness to become “contributors to society” by engaging in voluntary work
  2. Significantly increase the engagement of volunteers (drawn from the general public) to enhance and improve the environment and experiences of REH patients.
