One Northern Devon in conjunction with one of the key partners, Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, have been inspired to build on the brilliant community response to the Covid-19 pandemic where members of the community supported those with no support network around them.

This fantastic response was recognised in regional and national media. One Northern Devon and the network of ‘One Communities’ are keen to build on this to provide support to those that are discharged from hospital who have no support network from friends or family around them.

Would you like to help reduce the fear and anxiety that vulnerable patients feel when they return home from a hospital stay?

Can you be that neighbourly friendly face to provide a helpful and warm welcome home?

Full training is provided and you control how often you volunteer.

If you would like to find out more about being a Home From Hospital volunteer, contact your Community Developer for more information.
