Home from Hospital Volunteer
We would like to hear from friendly, caring people in the High Peak and Northern Derbyshire Dales who would like to support people after a hospital stay or people who are at risk of being admitted to hospital.
Home from Hospital volunteers will help to support vulnerable people who have no other support networks. Support is offered for a six week period, to help people to get home from their hospital stay more quickly, or prevent them from being admitted or re-admitted to hospital. You will help with day to day support like shopping, transport, or just providing company.
You can choose to volunteer on a weekly, fortnightly or ad-hoc basis. All volunteers receive training and on-going support from the Home from Hospital coordinator. Volunteers also receive out of pocket expenses.
