Reach for Health is the operating name of the charity Daventry Health Rehabilitation Trust, a registered charity that was formed in 2010.
‘‘However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.’’
– Stephen Hawking
Our team at Reach for Health have wide ranging skills that are all focused on one specific purpose, health rehabilitation. Although many of our users are from Daventry and the surrounding villages, we provide continuing exercise based health rehabilitation for people from communities across Northamptonshire, from Warwickshire and sometimes further afield.
Our Daventry centre helps those who have experienced a major health trauma together with those experiencing long-term and life-long serious health conditions. We are now experiencing around 2,400 user visits per month excluding those that attend the specialist classes that we operate. We are an NHS Accredited Willing Provider, and work with the Northampton General Hospital Community Stroke Team, the Cardio Rehabilitation Team, the NHS Restart Team and C.O.P.D. patients. Over 90% of our users were referred to us by their GP’s, NHS Hospital doctors and consultants or other Health Professionals. We are currently receiving in the region of 500 new NHS referrals per year. Despite the fact that we are recognised so strongly by the NHS we receive no income from them or any other governmental organisation. Our current sources of income are derived from a small monthly charge to users, that equates to an average of £2.30 per visit, local fundraising carried out by our staff, volunteers, members and trustees and occasional grants that are invariably used to purchase new equipment.
The work done by Reach for Health benefits the health economy in a number of ways, including:
- Improved mental and physical health & wellbeing with personalised care
- Effective falls prevention
- Reduced primary care demand
- Reduced GP & NHS outpatient appointments
- Reduced prescribed medication
- Cardio Rehabilitation – reduction in further cardiac events
- Improved life expectancy from improvement in all-round integrated care
- Increased self-care ability of the community
- Reduced social isolation
For our current fees and charges please see our website, telephone us or call in and enquire at reception. We are a disabled friendly establishment.
