During the lockdown, staff at Langdon Hospital were struggling with the restrictions and lack of connection both in and out of work. Our DPT Charity helped us provide opportunities to come together safely at drop in sessions.
Staff talked about how they had not realised how little they had relaxed in recent weeks and months and how lovely it was to take some time out to connect and reflect. They were able to share with each other what helped them to cope and also reflect on all the changes. Funding from the Charity COVID Fund helped our Secure Services staff at a time when they really needed it and feedback from those that attended said it was very much appreciated.
Our Charity exists to meet the wishes of those who use our services, carers and staff of Devon Partnership NHS Trust to enhance our care.
If you’d like to fundraise for us, have any questions, or make a donation please email Daniel Robson, Head of Charity Fundraising, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to everyone that has supported the DPT Charity and has helped to make these small changes, which make a big difference.
