Home from Hospital


We are pleased to announce the launch of our Home from Hospital Service, based in our Ashbourne Office and covering the South Derbyshire Dales.

The service assists people aged over 65 who are returning home after a spell in hospital. Volunteers will be able to provide shopping support, assistance with practical tasks, transport and befriending. 

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, Sarah Clowes on 01335 348600 or email

Home from Hospital Volunteers


The service would suit a volunteer that may not wish to make a longer term commitment to offer support to a person. Home form hospital volunteers would support someone for six weeks. Volunteers must be flexible, friendly and like to spend time with older people.

Please contact Sarah on the above contact details for further information.
