Commissioning SHaRON

SHaRON is a secure community that can offer an opportunity to work in a different way with the individuals supported by your organisation.

Supported by your service clinicians, enhanced further through volunteer and peer moderators on the platform, SHaRON is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year-round. SHaRON can augment the provision of your services reaching out to members who would benefit from the support that their peers can offer whilst ensuring this is available outside of normal office hours.

SHaRON is delivered as a comprehensive project by dedicated project managers in the SHaRON HQ team alongside your own project managers. Working closely together ensures that the right foundations are in place to support a ‘go live’ of a SHaRON for your organisation.  The project typically takes approx. six months once started through to go-live.

With significant experience in delivering SHaRONs across a range of services mentioned on the SHaRON home page tab, you can click on the meet the team tab above to get to know the SHaRON project management team, who alongside the developers can help you deliver a SHaRON that is right for your organisation.

As part of NHSX and the original GDE work a blueprint with additional details can be found here: NHSX Blueprint.

The SHaRON project management team have experience in addressing the questions that frequently arise when thinking about how SHaRON might work for an organisation including around training, managing risk and governance and have written information that can be shared to make bespoke to your organisation.

There are costs associated with the platform and these can be discussed further if you are interested in progressing an enquiry through our contact page.

Integrity and security of the platform are of paramount importance to the whole SHaRON team ensuring that members are able to safely and securely access the support and resources that they need at the time they need them.

If you are interested in having a more detailed discussion about how SHaRON could work for your organisation or have any questions, please contact us via the Contact tab.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Across all the SHaRONs in the last financial year it is estimated the cost for each member was as little as under 20p per day but the impact for many was invaluable.
