Discharge grants available to help people home from hospital
One-off grants of up to £1,200 are available in BNSSG to help people stay well at home following a hospital stay.
The discharge support grant scheme aims to help improve ‘flow’ through local hospitals and free up beds for those who are medically unwell, by supporting carers, families, friends or voluntary supporters with minor costs associated with keeping a loved one well at home following their discharge.
It can be used to support costs including childcare support, pet care and equipment. Funding can also pay for short-term personal care from a self-employed personal assistant, to help with day-to-day activities. It may be possible for a family member or friend to be supported to provide personal care.
