Advance Care Planning Champions
The Consortium are looking for volunteers to help run stalls and workshops across Lambeth to raise awareness about how people can plan ahead and record their future treatment and care wishes. Team members will receive training and support every step of the way, and have the chance to help devise alternative ways to deliver activities during the covid-19 pandemic.
