For people leaving hospital, adjusting to life at home can be a difficult time. Helping someone get their essential shopping, pick up their prescription or get the heating turned on can make all the difference for them to feel safe at home.

We would like you to be able to: • Volunteer for 2 hours a week Monday to Sunday 9:00am-11:00pmto help resettle someone into their home or support on the wards at the hospital. • Have a driving licence but not essential. Please note this can be out of Bristol Royal Infirmary or Southmead Hospital.
