ART Receives Award from Prime Minister

The Prime Minister has today, 21 May, recognised ART for coordinating volunteer visits to hospitals.


Liz is the founder of the ‘Anne Robson Trust’ which coordinates volunteer visits to hospitals to offer company and comfort to patients at the end of their lives. Following the death of her mother Anne Robson in 2010, Liz worked with the local NHS Trust on improving the hospital experience for terminally ill patients. Starting initially as a small group of volunteers, Liz soon realised that, for many patients, a volunteer was their only visitor. Liz set up the ‘Anne Robson Trust’ in 2017 and has since trained and led volunteers who have offered more than 700 hours at patients’ bedsides at the Princess Alexandra Hospital. The volunteers have carried out 1,300 visits to 450 individual patients across the hospital. This year the project is expanding to other hospitals with the creation of volunteer coordinator roles.
