How we help
Since the NHS was formed, Royal Voluntary Service has been a key part of the care it provides.
Through support services like hospital shops, trolley services, on ward visits and help in getting home, our volunteers help hardworking NHS staff focus on giving each patient the care they deserve. Their care also supports patients and hospital visitors through a difficult time.
By offering a helping hand when patients return home from hospital, our volunteers improve the likelihood that they’ll have a faster and longer-lasting recovery.
