Who we are 

Coaching through Covid was established in March 2020 in response to the pressures we perceived front line staff in the NHS and Care sector were. Since then we have matched over 500 frontline staff with over 300 coaches.

We want to be of service to key workers by offering high-quality professional inclusive coaching and other timely, demand -led interventions which are bespoke to individual needs and schedules. Our Aim is to support staff to find meaning, learning and growth from their experiences, attend to their own wellbeing and deliver sustainable care to those they serve.

 

Being a Volunteer with Coaching Through COVID

Everyone in the CTC team is a volunteer, giving their time pro bono to provide support to our key workers throughout this difficult time. We meet virtually as a team once a week each Thursday to check on everyone’s wellbeing, discuss emergent issues and perspectives and review a set agenda of progress and immediate matters of resource and administration. Everyone is invited to the meeting but, given the voluntary nature of this project, there’s no obligation placed on anyone to attend every meeting.

“I volunteered for the CtC Admin team in September 2020. I had lost a close friend to Covid and I wanted to do something to support the NHS teams who had battled to save my friend. CtC is a family who support each other. Its inclusive, supportive and I have enjoyed being part of this amazing team. I have been able to combine my commitment to CtC with work and family life”.
