What we Do
Provide a peer support service to all healthcare workers who request support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hand-n-Hand is a free pre-clinical service and does not involve any medical or psychiatric treatment. Support is available for:
Individual Peer Support: A healthcare worker will be matched to one of our dedicated volunteers
Group Peer Support: A healthcare worker will be matched with other workers in the same field and level of experience, and facilitated by a dedicated hand-n-hand volunteer.
