Dog Rescue Volunteers
Doggy Dens UK Rescue
How can we possibly know how to deliver the best care possible if we don’t know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of our care? Feedback from our service users (and their families and carers) is critical. Without it, we risk delivering care that fails to make the difference in people’s lives that we’re aiming for.
We are currently looking to recruit people to join a group of volunteers to gather feedback at our Sherwood Oaks Unit in Mansfield. This will take place by talking and spending time with patients and/or carers and then feeding back to the Trust in a variety of ways.
