Volunteering in Health is a charity based in Teignbridge, Devon which aims to improve the wellbeing of local people. We want to keep our clients living as safely, independently as happily as possible, for as long as possible. We cover Teignmouth, Dawlish, Chudleigh, Bishopsteignton, Holcombe, and Shaldon.
Volunteering in Health is based within the Coastal Information Centre at Teignmouth Hospital and we provide information and signposting about all of the great support that is available locally. We work closely with our statutory sector to give holistic support to all of our clients, and to ensure that we are helping the people who need us most.
Come into the Information Centre or give us a call on 01626 771695 Monday-Friday 10-3 to find out more about how we can help you or a loved one, or if you’d like to become a volunteer!
