Every day, thousands of people leave hospital with no friends or family to help…
…and that’s where we come in!
During 2021, there was almost an 80%* rise in the number of patients who were unable to be discharged from hospital due to lack of support at home, placing additional pressure on our NHS.
Thousands of vulnerable people in Britain today are spending longer than necessary in hospital, simply because they have nobody to help them at home. Thousands more are facing the stark reality of having to return home without any support in place. Royal Voluntary Service ensures that patients return to a warm home, we deliver food and prescriptions where needed and we help them get to vital follow up medical appointments to ensure they can recover comfortably and safely at home.
A donation from you today could help us to be there for more vulnerable people as they leave hospital. And for every donation you make, we’ll treat a hard-working hospital worker to a cuppa at one of our shops or cafés.
