Helping our hospitals

We have been overwhelmed by offers of support and we would like to thank you. We are aware that people would like to know how they can help their local hospital and their local community and there are many projects happening around Worcestershire. Below you will find information about how you can help our hospitals as well as links to the many opportunities for volunteers across Worcestershire. So we hope that this will help us, to help you, to help us at this difficult time.

You may have seen the government response to volunteering. A new NHS Responders service is looking for four key types of volunteer, from telephone companions, people to collect food and medicine, support with settling patients home and transporting supplies. If this could be you, please go to the GoodSam app here

Thank You
