About the meeting:

We will have presentations from staff and service users involved in a Compassionate Neighbours project run by Hertfordshire hospices, which provides one to one and group environment to older people.

The aims of the project were to:

  • Improve wellbeing and quality of life Bring people together through helping patients, family members, carers, and volunteers to reconnect to their communities Reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation
  • Ensure equitable access to services so anyone in need of palliative care can easily access the support they need, at the earliest opportunity
  • This project was funded by the Big Lottery Community Fund and evaluated by the University of Hertfordshire (click here for the final report).
