The Anne Robson Trust
Butterfly Volunteer teams visit patients in hospitals who are in the last days and hours of their life, and provide support for them and their loved ones.
The volunteers provide compassionate listening, comfort and companionship for patients in the last few days and hours of life, many of whom have few or no visitors, and would otherwise be alone.
During 2016 Liz set up and ran an award winning team of Butterfly Volunteers at East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, and quickly realised the impact that this simple, effective scheme had on so many people.
The ultimate goal is to ensure that everyone who dies in a UK hospital has someone to speak to, and someone to hold their hand, as they face their final days.
