florence - telehealth application

Florence is for the NHS in the UK. Florence is already being used in over 70 health and social care organisations; the number is increasing all the time. Florence has been designed to enable patients to increase their involvement in the management of their treatment, condition or lifestyle. Clinical staff use Florence to collect readings or symptom information remotely from patients in relation to their healthcare needs. In return Florence sends health advice based on the readings, as agreed with their clinician. Florence can also alert clinicians if a patient's condition worsens to allow them to intervene appropriately. Florence can also send reminders and health tips to support engagement and compliance with health or lifestyle advice.

wellbeing

Our highly specialised services work to a community development model where our goal is for survivors to be empowered to move forward from the impact of trauma. Our core team involves our skilled management team and specialist trauma trained counsellors delivering the service to survivors. We utilise the skills of volunteer counsellors, most of which are either fully qualified or they are studying for their Diploma or Doctorate and carrying out a placement with us.

Our adult services are holistic and they offer a range of services as we are aware that everyone will have different needs. As well as our core service of counselling and advocacy we offer befriending, group support (including gardening, art/ crafts, fundraising, writing and therapeutic groups). Survivors told us they wanted to be involved in campaigning and this has been very successful thanks to their ongoing commitment. Our EMDR/ EFT service has been very popular with survivors in assisting them with traumatic memories and flashbacks. Funding from Awards for All enabled Sarah Nelson, a distinguished researcher to work with us to develop a pack for survivors informing them about physical health issues.

Open Secret have been providing services within prisons for almost 20 years and our prison manager has experience of personally working within prisons, with her work being highly regarded and evidenced. We won the tender to deliver services to survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Sadly the statistics have been extremely high as this reflects the scale of childhood sexual abuse and the impact which can lead to negative coping strategies and time in prison. However, as can be seen by our evidence, recovery from the trauma can lead to a different future for survivors.
