HRS Staff on the Capital Card® Scheme
EG is an NHS mental health nurse working with WDP in Hackney. When asked how the Capital Card® was affecting clients in recovery, he said this:
“When I first heard about the Capital Card I genuinely thought that it was a complete waste of time and potentially a
little belittling to our client group. Since its inception, I’ve seen how popular it has become and how service users have really taken to it, during their engagement with the service and how happy they are when they get points for their attendance. The rewards that are now on offer will benefit this client group and offer additional reasons to engage but also offer practical goods, e.g the clothes on offer from the Capital Card shop.
I am excited to see how the Capital Card Scheme can develop further and how the rewards on offer will evolve the longer this scheme goes on. Keep up the good work!”
