Sometimes we do not always have the friends, family or help around us that we need to stay safe and independent in our home. Our Out of Hospital Support service aims to promote independence, reduce social isolation and loneliness and prevent hospital admissions.

We can offer support and practical assistance after discharge from hospital to help you settle back into your own home. This can include shopping, paying bills, sorting post, wellbeing visits and light housework. This short-term help gives you time to focus on getting better and reduce the chance of you being readmitted to hospital. For those people with multiple or complex issues, our team of Facilitators can work with you to help you access a range of services that you may require and to connect you with a range of organisations and opportunities that will help you live well.

We can also assist with transport home after a hospital stay where an ambulance isn’t necessary, so that you can spend more time focussing on your recovery, with our support.

Volunteers needed!

Are you looking to make a direct impact on someone's journey back to health?

We’re looking for dedicated volunteers to join our team and make a lasting impact on the lives of individuals transitioning back into the local community. Our services rely on the support of volunteers to provide crucial assistance to those in need.

How you can make a difference:

Volunteers play a vital role in our mission by assisting our team in the hospital. We require chatty and friendly people in our service to talk with patients and are looking for those who will value experience in supporting our NHS.

As a volunteer, you can help directly engage with individuals in their own homes, offering much-needed support and companionship.

Volunteers also assist us in maintaining open lines of communication and handling new referrals, liaising with other professionals within the hospital.
