Organisation aims and objectives

We support the NHS and Clients in the community across Forth Valley following a hospital stay/ill-health or a period of isolation to improve health and wellbeing, resilience, confidence and connections and to reduce the chances of re-admission to hospital. This is done through matching with one of our “Supporting Your Recover” volunteers for regular visits and phone calls
