Home from Hospital

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Home from Hospital Service, based in our Buxton Office and Whitworth Hospital. We will be covering Buxton and North Derbyshire Dales including Bakewell, Matlock and Cromford.

The service assists all vulnerable people of any age to come home after a spell in hospital.

Volunteers will be able to provide shopping support, assistance with practical tasks, picking up prescriptions and signposting to other voluntary sector and community organisations etc.


Returning home from hospital can be a daunting prospect for many, but our Home from Hospital Service can help smooth the process and assist in settling people back in at home. The service will be free of charge for up to six weeks after discharge from hospital.

If you feel yourself or someone you know could benefit from the service or you would like to volunteer for the service, please contact the Co-ordinator, Becky Young on 07956 709 995 or email
