Our administration volunteers assist in the office in a variety of ways – ensuring client folders are made up and ready to go, preparing brochures, caring for our EPC plants, making up journal tools and biography packs, writing cards and letters for our bereaved carers.
We have a volunteer team who meet every fortnight and handwrite 80 – 100 cards (each time) to our new bereaved carers. Comments from clinical staff are:
“One carer has never accessed counselling but because of the card and letter felt EPC was continuing to reach out to him and decided to access the help he needed in bereavement from EPC.”
“Many bereaved carers we ring talk about the handwritten card they received and how touching it was for them”
