Family Nursing & Home Care has launched their impact report detailing how the charity has supported islanders by providing high quality community healthcare in Jersey and how in 2021, they have supported islanders to start well, live well, age well.
The report, which provides an impressive insight into FNHC’s contribution and impact, highlights the successful delivery of community healthcare over the past year, in both testimonials and statistics:
- District Nursing team managed 4,657 referrals in 2021
- District Nursing team made 44,168 visits in 2021
- Children’s Community Nursing Team supported 103 Families in Jersey in 2021
- Rapid Response and Reablement Team supported over 1,000 islanders in 2021
- School Nurses’ caseload includes all children on Island, this equates to over 17,000 children
- Family Nursing and Home Care provided care to 34,000 islanders in 2021
The report also draws attention to the charity’s income generation and fundraising efforts and highlights the work underway in the community health sector and subsequently the charity’s strategic priorities moving forward, which includes involvement in shaping Jersey’s new Care Model.
Family Nursing and Home Care have a packed few weeks of activities ahead. The charity, supported by The Jersey Community Foundation with funds from the Channel Islands Lottery, are hosting a Tea Party at Government House on Monday 13th June, for the families supported by the FNHC Paediatric Palliative Care Support Worker and for the FNHC team to thank them for all their hard work in caring for the Jersey Community.
‘Design your crown’ competition
As part of the 2022 Jubilee celebrations and in the run up to their annual Colour Festival fundraising event, FNHC recently launched a ‘Design your Crown’ competition. With a bid to get all islanders involved in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, FNHC have designed a crown template for children to print, cut out and decorate.
The winner of the competition will launch the 2022 FNHC Colour Festival and have their design professionally created and sent to her majesty the Queen on behalf of FNHC, whose roots trace back to the Royal College of Nursing.
2022 Colour Festival
After a two year hiatus, the annual FNHC Colour Festival event is back on Saturday 25th June. The Colour Festival involves a 5km run through five colour stations where participants are showered with vibrant (environmentally friendly) coloured powdered paint. The event is open to families, corporate teams and groups of friends and promises a fantastic day of fun and fundraising for all islanders, giving you the chance to get colourful for your community.
All money from the Colour Festival funds our Paediatric Palliative Care Worker (PPCW). This role, which provides respite for families with life limiting and life threatening illnesses, allows children to achieve their goals and have the same experiences as others whenever possible. Islanders can sign up to the Colour Festival here.
FNHC CEO Rosemarie Finley commented: “It is critical that charities are able to demonstrate the impact they have on the communities they serve. Our recent impact report demonstrates the amazing care and services our teams
consistently deliver to the Jersey community. We invite you to visit our website to read about the impact we make and to learn more about FNHC and the events and fundraising activities under way .”
