In this guide, you will learn about Aneurin Bevan University Health Board’s end of life care volunteer companionship service and advice on how you can adapt it to work in your organisation.
It will help you decide if a similar service would benefit your organisation, and to consider how to adapt the service to your environment.
Adapting and adopting an existing volunteer service model provides great value in terms of knowing that it is tried and tested. You can learn from other organisations’ experiences and best practice is already established. Having evidence of a similar service’s impact can also help you get buy-in from key stakeholders in your organisation.
However, understanding how to make an existing service fit into a new environment can be a challenge. Adapting the service is an essential step in making sure it will work in a new location.
