Engage Programme

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust




Other NHS Trusts can become members of the Engage programme to develop their own trained volunteer programmes. Please contact us for more information or to discuss.


Port Talbot

The Engage project has been running in Salisbury District hospital for over four years and has been well received by patients and their families alike. We are now offering this programme to other hospitals in the UK.

We have begun the expansion of Engage with a pilot study in Port Talbot; the hospital has had a positive response from staff and prospective volunteers.

The Engage programme training package includes the Engage programme manual, which is a step by step guide to starting up the Engage programme in other hospitals, eight hours of on-site interactive training sessions from the Salisbury clinical psychology team and ongoing supervision and support for one year.
