Advice and support on staying well at home

Saturday, 14 March 2020
Royal Voluntary Service offers guidance and advice to the many people that we help on a daily basis whether it be in people’s homes, in the community or while supporting the NHS.

Drawn from this experience and those we partner with, Royal Voluntary Service has produced a number of guides that can be printed out and given to friends, family or carers.

Much of the advice offered is relevant for people who may be at home for a period of time with subjects ranging from easy exercises to do at home to guidance on how to ensure you are eating well and staying hydrated.

Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest voluntary service organisations in Britain. We inspire and enable volunteers to help people in need in hospitals, at home and in the community.

Our volunteers improve patient experience in hospital, aid recovery after a stay on ward, help older people support themselves at home, stay fit and active and build meaningful social connections.

Royal Voluntary Service supports volunteers to run services in the community such as lunch and dining clubs, physical activity classes, craft, gardening and other hobby groups. We work collaboratively with other charities, social care providers and the NHS to help create a society where everyone feels valued and involved.

The charity is one of the UK’s largest hospital retailers with volunteer-run shops, cafés and trolley services providing tea and company to patients, hospital staff and visitors.

To become a local volunteer search for volunteering opportunities in your area. Or help make a difference by making a secure online donation.
