We are ICSM Connect! We are a volunteering society whose aim is to combat loneliness and isolation experienced by elderly patients in hospital. The support we provide to these patients is vital in keeping their spirits up during difficult times, but it is also super rewarding to feel like you've made a difference. If you are a kind, caring person who enjoys giving back to others and having a cheerful chat, then we are the society for you!
We go to Charing Cross and St Mary's hospital every two weeks in small groups and have conversations with patients on care of the elderly wards. We are also a friendly, welcoming volunteer community and we bond throughout the year at lots of different socials and academic events. Check us out on Facebook (at ICSM Connect) and Instagram (@icsm_connect) to find out more!
