In this role you would be part of a team supporting people who are being discharged from hospital. From the initial journey home, to helping someone get back into their daily routines, we help people recover and reconnect with their community.

Description

Home from Hospital Volunteers are needed to provide a friendly and confidential service to people as they return home after a hospital stay. Our volunteers offer one-to-one, short-term, practical support, which supports the NHS and enables patients with low medical needs but limited support, to return home as soon as they are able. You might help by driving your own vehicle to pick someone up from the hospital and settling them at home, or you may prefer to support with shopping, collecting prescriptions, ad-hoc journeys to appointments - or just being there when people begin to do things for themselves again. you'll need to have a friendly personality with the ability to observe and identify areas of concern.

you'll have good communication and listening skills, with a non-judgemental attitude towards an individual’s circumstances and a willingness to ensure confidentiality. Your role will involve elements of lone working and building a relationship with those you visit, which is hugely rewarding for both you and the people you support. We are flexible to accommodate your specific skills and availability - so please tell us what your strengths and interests are when we meet. We will support you through the relevant online and face to face training for your role and you will be welcomed and supported by a friendly local team.

Please note: this role is only suitable for over 18s
