NHS Volunteer Responders and VCSE Referrals

Update from NELCCG: Please note the below, which came through via the regional carers network.

VCSE organisations can now refer people for the support of an NHS Volunteer Responder where there is limited local support available.

There is work being undertaken on the communication of this to the sector, and the various websites and guidance do not yet reflect the change, but the NHS Volunteer Responders referrers’ portal does.

However it is important to note though that requests from NHS/Gov email addresses will go live automatically and alternative addresses will need approval and may take up to 72 hours.
