Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust (KCHFT) say managing a long-term condition doesn‘t have to be hard. Their Expert Patients Programme (EPP) is there to help people regain independence, manage everyday situations and boost mental health and wellbeing.

They are currently looking for volunteers to join the programme by becoming a self-management volunteer facilitator.

Whats are Self-management volunteer facilitators?

Self-management volunteer facilitators make a real difference to people living with a long-term health condition. It can be a very rewarding opportunity and a great confidence booster. 

Self-management volunteer facilitators are good listeners who can build rapport with a small group of people, can commit to delivering at least one course a year with training and ongoing support and carry out routine administration after each course.

So, if this sounds like something you would like to be involved in, you are aged 18-years+ and you, or someone close to you, have a long-term condition, KCHFT would love to invite you to apply to become a self-management volunteer facilitator.

Previously completing an EPP course is not essential but is preferred.  

Want to get involved?

You can complete their application form and return it to me by email at kcht.epp@nhs.net or if you have any questions you can call me on 01233 667808.
