Why book an awareness activity?

Our speakers and awareness volunteers are a great way to inspire the community about the work of Richard House. We have a team of trained volunteers throughout Newham, Tower Hamlets and the surrounding London Boroughs who carry out talks to groups both large and small (from a minimum of five people up to 100) and give you the information you need to know about Richard House. We know that talks can truly make a difference!
If a talk won't suit your workplace/event and you would prefer to have an information stand or another tailored activity, our volunteers can make it happen. Just let us know! Email us at [email protected] or call us on 020 7540 0228 to find out how we can help.

What would the talk about?

At an awareness talk, you'll learn:

  • What is Richard House
  • What is a life-limiting and life-threatening illness
  • Care for children - support for families
  • Services that make a difference to all the family
  • Caring for a child with complex needs
  • Hospice at Home
  • Respite Care
  • End of Life care
  • How you can help

These interactive talks can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour (depending on how many questions you might want to ask). And if you've only 5 minutes free, that's not a problem - we can still give you the five things you should know.

We've given talks in the workplace, at sports/ social clubs, faith groups, community centres and even football stadiums. Basically if there's a place where your group meets up then we'll be there.

Who can attend?

We'll talk to anyone and everyone. You will get the vital information to pass on to partners, friends and family who need to know the facts.

Are there other activities I can request?

If a talk won't suit your workplace/event, there are got plenty of other ways we can help you raise awareness. From an information stand to an informal talk or a different activity tailored to your needs, our volunteers can make it happen. Just let us know!
