Side Effects / Covid-19 / Ep31: How to build a functioning volunteer system in a time of crisis? Dr Kate Hammer talks about her leading roles in NHS Hero Support, Shield Collaboration and Covsleeves.

[48 Mins]

Today, I talk to Dr Kate Hammer who in the pandemic has held numerous key roles orchestrating support, whilst in lockdown from her London home.

From her work at NHS Hero Support to the Shield Collaborative, we discuss how to orchestrate effective management in a crisis, through to relationship management and support. As we talk about her current projects like ‘Covsleeves.com’, Kate opens up about how her work enables safer human interactions.
