The Day Services Team offer a range of support for our outpatients and their families. These services aim to promote wellbeing and relaxation, helping people to feel part of the Martlets community and reduce social isolation. We hold a variety of ad hoc events each year, including choir concerts, tea dances and coffee mornings.

We are looking for volunteers who can work with the Day Services Supportive Care Lead, Ann Borg to become a coordinator for these events, with a focus on choir concerts during 2017.

Where:

Performances and concerts often take place at venues across Brighton and Hove, however planning meetings are held at the Hospice, in Wayfield Ave, Hove.

What’s in it for you:
