Home improvement and support specialist Revival can continue to help local people leaving hospital thanks to £500 charity grant.

Throughout the pandemic, Revival have been providing food parcels to patients leaving hospital as part of their Home Support Service. It helps people return safely home from hospital by making sure they have what they need to be discharged and that their homes meet their changing needs.

Midlands-based Baron Davenport’s Charity supports organisations that help older people. They have awarded Revival a £500 charity grant to continue essential parcels deliveries over the next year.

Julie Russell, Head of Support and Wellbeing at Revival explains: “We’re so pleased to receive this funding. It’s thanks to supporters like Baron Davenport’s Charity that means we can continue to bring homes to life and make sure it’s where people feel their best.

“Our Home Support Service has been a lifeline to patients and hospitals over the last 18 months. Supplying food and essentials to people waiting to be discharged who without would have to stay in hospital.

“It helps relieve the pressure hospitals face by allowing patients to be discharged quicker. It also releases bed spaces for those that need them.

“This grant means we can continue to provide that lifeline to local hospitals in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. This will be vital as they face winter pressures and continue to battle against COVID-19.

“It will make sure that older or more vulnerable people are safe and happy at home and won’t go without.”
