Emerge is purposely non-clinical and do not perform a clinical role, we’re simply there to listen and offer emotional support.  We do work closely with clinical professionals and pass on information about young people where necessary.

We take care to only recruit team members who can relate well both with young people and professionals alike.

We value our position as volunteers and find the fact that our team members are freely giving their time is appreciated within the hospital by staff and patients – it affords us goodwill in many difficult situations.
