Our services

Our services at Royal Voluntary Service
As the coronavirus situation continues, our services in communities and in the NHS have had to change. Following the Government’s advice, we have taken the decision to stop all face-to-face community and hospital services, but our dedicated teams will continue to support the community with companionship telephone calls and by delivering essential food and medication.

The charity’s hundreds of social clubs and groups are unable to meet during this time so the Virtual Village Hall programme is designed to bring people together to enjoy activities at the same time.

If you are vulnerable or at risk and need help collecting shopping, medication or other essential supplies, please call 0808 196 3646 (8am to 8pm)

Coronavirus support and guidance

Royal Voluntary Service volunteers provide practical support and companionship to help people get the best out of life.

We do this by helping older people stay active and connected to their local community, our volunteers run Social Clubs and Activities, exercise classes and hobby groups, Lunch Clubs and Community Cafés. These are warm, welcoming places to meet up with friends old and new, enjoy refreshments and interesting activities and learn new skills.

In hospitals, our volunteers provide companionship for older patients that don’t have family nearby, run physical and mental exercise classes to support recovery, help settle clients back at home after a hospital stay and run shops, cafés and trolley services.
