Cystic Fibrosis Buddies

Students studying a healthcare-related degree programme will act in a volunteering role to support adult persons with cystic fibrosis (PWCF) who attend the Adult CF Unit at the Belfast City Hospital. Volunteers will:

  • Support PWCF on their chosen educational/vocational pathways by supporting them to reach their own goals either in employment or further education through a buddying educational/mentor role
  • Assist healthcare professionals within the CF Multidisciplinary team in the promotion and development of key literacy skills and the supply of evidence-based information to patients in layman’s terms in order that patients can contribute to their own healthcare
