New listening service for VCSE staff and volunteers


Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care System, in partnership with CPFT, have launched a new support service in response to the pandemic, specifically for people who work in healthcare, social care, the voluntary sector or not-for-profit sector in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The pandemic has affected us all in different ways. We know it can be particularly hard to look after yourself when you feel you have to be there for others. The Staff Support Hub has been set up to support volunteers and teams in the voluntary sector through any problems they are facing, whatever they may be. The Hub is run by experts in the mental health field and confidentiality is paramount.

Please help ensure your team/s are aware of its availability – whether they need to talk to somebody, seek advice on where to find specific resources, or receive counselling.  The attached leaflet contains the telephone number and link to the callback service.  We are also currently setting up a facility for managers to contact us to discuss the need and organise a group session or a team debrief from a particular situation, which will be delivered by the Hub team and will stay in touch via Hunts Forum with new developments.

For any queries about the Staff Support Hub, please contact Laura McEwen-Smith Project Lead
