For all people, heart and soul.

Heart and Soul volunteers

Being human, together ~ heart and soul

We are Heart and Soul volunteers, specialist NHS Chaplains and peer workers and this is what we offer:

  • a focus on the little things we can do together that can help make the unbearable bearable
  • calm and safe spaces to be
  • meeting individually and in groups to share and explore life and our part in it
  • the healing benefits of 'being human together' in a kind,accepting, gentle way
  • someone to explore and affirm your spirituality with, should you wish
  • a chance to join others exploring life's meaning and the values we share, whatever our individual beliefs
  • someone to talk to in confidence if you're struggling in your healthcare role or role as a carer
  • specialists in religious practice, care and understanding
  • a way into volunteering


During the current Covid-19 crisis

We are offering ZOOM groups [see poster link, below] and a Heart and Soul telephone listening service to support people with mental and physical health challenges and/or who are vulnerable to loneliness - anyone can refer them to us, and they may self refer.

There is a heartfelt, mindful, soulful reflection on a theme each week, in Heart and Soul on Sunday at 11am, here: Meeting ID 944 4932 4440 Passcod12345 [if required]
