To upgrade our website so that NHS staff and their patients and families can continue to receive our support via our on-line Well-being Hub

by Tracey di Lorenzo in London, England, United Kingdom

The Full Circle Fund Therapies is an award winning charity specialising in the support of very sick children and adults through the use of  complimentary therapies.  We deliver specialist expertise and evidence-based support in some of the most intensive and complex hospital environments.   We operate on the cancer wards at St George's Hospital, London and the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.  

We had to suspend face to face ward visits due to Covid-19,  so set up a Well-being Hub on our website to bring remote Mindfulness, Breathing Techniques, Guided Visualisations and Chair Based Techniques to NHS staff and their vulnerable patients, (some of which are in isolation on cancer wards and are not allowed visitors).  We are also setting up video group sessions for targeted patients who are self-isolating at home.  Many of these patients are living alone with their illnesses and are desperate for support.

To continue to provide these services we urgently need to upgrade our website to cope with the extra traffic that we are experiencing .  We have had over 3000 visits to our Wellbeing Hub at launch and are hoping to expand further to reach even more desperately ill people.  It is free to use and no password is needed.  Please help us help and support the most sick and vulnerable in our communities.

We totally rely on donations to sustain and develop our work, we receive no NHS or Government funding.

"Your team always smiled, were kind, caring and genuinely wanted to help me through my treatment.  After the therapy I experienced complete relaxation.  It also gave me something to look forward to during a long stay in hospital for my cancer treatment"
