Welcome Home Service accepts referrals for anyone over the age of 18, returning home following a hospital or care setting admission. It takes the form of befriending, shopping and signposting to other organisations. This aids people’s recovery and helps to reduce the risk of readmission to hospital. We also provide emergency food parcels to aid discharge. We take referrals from all Birmingham wards and any ethnic group, provided the client speaks English or we have a volunteer who speaks the required language.
