We are looking for volunteers for a new service supporting vulnerable people being discharged from hospital.

The Home from Hospital Service will provide short-term, low-level, practical support including:

  • Ensuring homes are warm to return to
  • Food and shopping for other essentials
  • Prescription collection
  • Escorting to essential appointments
  • A chat over a cup of tea
  • Other low-level tasks to aid timely discharges, post-discharge recovery and to prevent unnecessary readmissions.

Volunteers will be fully trained and supported by Home from Hospital Coordinators. 

Roles are subject to satisfactory references and a DBS Check. 

Email volunteering@ageuksolihull.org.uk or call 0121 704 7843 (leave a message and we'll call you back) for information about how to apply.
