From 7th June, Volunteering in Health will be based at Teignmouth Hospital. From here we will continue to provide all of our existing services, but our new base also means that we will be able to launch a new Information Centre, providing information and support to local people.
To run this Information Centre smoothly we will be looking for new volunteers to join our 182-strong team to welcome visitors to the centre and provide them with initial information and support. To find out more about this new volunteer role, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Em Flint.
Obviously we will take a little time to move and settle into our new home, so we ask that you bear with us for the first few weeks as we find our feet. We will endeavour to keep everything running as smoothly as possible during this time.
We would like to thank Teignmouth Hospital for inviting us to work so closely with them. This closer link will enable us to work together more effectively, resulting in better support for all our clients.
We would also like to thank Marks & Spencer’s Spark Something Good project which has provided a grant and volunteer time to help get us set up. Last year Marks & Spencer chose us as their Charity of the year and raised over £5000 for us. Thanks also to the Incredible Fund and Graham Price, Chair of Teignbridge District Council, for their financial support towards our move.
We are very excited about our new venture, please do pop in and pay us a visit and share a cuppa with us. An official launch event is being planned for Saturday 15th July.
We look forward to seeing you at the Information Centre soon!
