Our Hospice Outreach Project brings information about St Barnabas services right into the community. In the past year, over 1,300 people have received face to face support from our Hospice Outreach Team, to help them cope with physical or emotional issues affecting their daily life.
This project, initially funded by the Department of Health, aims to help ease the questions and worries those affected by life-limiting illnesses may have. The Hospice Outreach Project (HOP) is a mobile vehicle unit which provides a flexible and accessible range of services right into the heart of the community.
The aim of the HOP is to bring hospice care to the community, hopefully making it accessible to everyone. It is manned by specially-trained staff and volunteers who are able to provide free information and support to people who are ill, bereaved or worried about someone who is.
With 14 visits every month to a variety of venues, anyone is welcome to drop in, with the team on hand to listen to any concerns you might have, as well as sharing information about St Barnabas House and other local services which might be of help.
All visits are subject to weather conditions. For more information please contact 01903 706357 or email HospiceOutreachProject@stbh.org.uk.
