Call for Hospital Navigator Volunteers to deliver new YMCA MK Initiative
Do you want to make a difference to the lives of local young people
affected by serious violence? If yes, then come and join our team as a
Hospital Navigator Volunteer.
This is an exciting time for YMCA MK. We are in the process of launching a new Hospital Navigator Scheme in partnership with Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) and Thames Valley Police, to provide support to young people who present at MKUH because of serious violence. Through this initiative, we can support patients and navigate them back into the community, building resilience and offering mentoring to prevent further
incidents that could lead them back into hospital.
This vital work will be led by our Hospital Navigator Co-ordinator, Tayler Tookey, who will manage a team of volunteers. We’re looking for people who can show empathy and patience and have a genuine passion for supporting young people. Speaking about the volunteers Tayler said, “This is a truly unique opportunity to make a life-changing impact on a young person’s life.
Sadly, we see too often new reports of local young people who have lost their lives due to serious violence. Through this new initiative, we will provide the intervention that give young people an alternative route. With the support of volunteers, we can make a real difference to our local community.” In return for your time, you will receive full training and support from YMCA MK.
