Insight & Impact

Our Insight & Impact (I&I) service helps you measure the difference your volunteers make to your NHS Trust.

"I have enjoyed being part of the Scale and Spread Programme. The leadership, supervision and support I have received from the Helpforce team has given me the confidence to make the right choices in planning and implementing the Active Response Volunteering programme in our Trust to support the pharmacy services.”
