  • Our Story

    Home from Hospital Care is a charity providing support to adults in Birmingham and Sandwell who have recently been discharged from hospital. We aim to make the transfer from hospital to home as positive and supported as possible, so that patients have the best chance of making a good recovery.

    We provide a range of support including befriending, support with shopping, emotional support, benefits advice, support to attend medical appointments, help with correspondence and form filling, a sitting-in service for carers and a cleaning and handy-man service. The service is for six weeks and it is free of charge.

    We are currently recruiting volunteers in Birmingham and Sandwell, from all backgrounds and with all levels of experience. Volunteers are most commonly involved in befriending and shopping, but they can get involved in other aspects of the support should they wish.

    Following DBS checks and training, we match volunteers with a service user, who they support for an hour each week for a six-week period. Visits can be more frequent if the volunteer feels able to commit to this. At the end of the period of support, the volunteer can take a break, or be matched with another service user.
