Community Transport Driver
If you enjoy driving this could be just for you! Our Scheme improves the transport provision for people in the local community who have limited mobility (be it through permanent or temporary disablement, illness, accident or age) or who would otherwise be socially excluded or geographically isolated. You would be a vital link in the community to take citizens to hospital, doctors appointments or to pick some shopping up.
Call Back Admin Volunteer
Vital role of calling patients within 48 hours of being transported home from hospital to make sure that they are ok and have what they require.

Speaking to patients who have recently been discharged from Colchester General Hospital in regards to support they might require now they have left hospital, including getting: medication or food services for them. befriending and telephone support. falls prevention slippers. winter resilience packs. walking buddys. social and green Prescribing. induction, training, resources and ongoing support given.

Home from Hospital
Our team provides simple, practical support to isolated people after they leave hospital.
We ease their worries about being discharged whilst they are in hospital, assist them in the transition back to their homes and continue to visit for 6 weeks afterwards.
We then support them with things such as sorting out transport or simply provide a cheerful, sympathetic presence over a cup of tea. We also signpost them to charities or social groups in their area, making sure they are not at risk of isolation, re-injury or returning to hospital.
We believe our work
creates a shared and
supportive community
