Daring to Dream is a young and ambitious charity, indeed we have just reached our first official birthday. What we do is to support the emotional health and wellbeing of patients in Wales by tangible means.

Daring to Dream’s Board of Directors is looking to recruit one or more volunteers to assist with the delivery and development of our social media reach. Expanding our media presence and linking this to raising awareness of Daring to Dream, to engaging more individuals and organisations as active supporters and to help drive fundraising is an essential element of our growth strategy.

At the moment, we are particularly searching for volunteer(s) with skills and experience in Social Media. Skills in Welsh are also desirable as well as lived patient experience. If you are inspired to help us support the emotional health of patient in Wales, do please get in touch with Barbara Chidgey, Chair of Daring to Dream. Contact details below.

Background information:

Daring to Dream is a charity set up to support the emotional health and wellbeing of patients in Wales who are under the care of hospital clinics across Wales. We have an initial (but not exclusive) focus in supporting both ward-based and community-based patients within the geographical area covered by Cardiff & the Vale University Health Board. As we develop, we will expand our impact into other health boards.

The emotional demand of being chronically, seriously, or critically ill, is on top of the immense physical demands generated by ill-health and accompanying treatments. For a patient to respond as well as possible on a physical level to their health challenges and treatments, it is essential that they also dig deep emotionally.

We aspire to help patients dare to dream that their life can still be full of colour and joy. Sarah and Bethan (members of the adult congenital heart disease team in University Hospital of Wales) explain the emotional impact for patients living with chronic conditions.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Barbara Chidgey, Chair.
