Move It Friends support people with short or long term health conditions who are without family and friends to help them re-arrange furniture in their homes to make way for essential equipment. This enables people to receive services from Health and Social Care professionals in the comfort of their own homes. The main task for Move It Volunteers is to move a bed to make way for a hospital bed – we always arrange for volunteers to work in pairs for this task!
