Volunteering in Health is a local charity providing a range of services for elderly, frail and isolated adults in Teignmouth, Dawlish, Shaldon, Bishopsteignton and Chudleigh.
Our volunteer drivers can take you to and from medical appointments, using their own cars or our wheelchair accessible vehicle. Call 01626 774484 to book transport.
If you feel lonely and isolated, one of our volunteer befrienders could come and visit you on a regular basis. We also have a telephone befriending service.
If you care for a loved one, you can access our one to one support, sitting service, and monthly Carers Meetings.
This service is designed for anyone living with dementia, or awaiting diagnosis, to help you access the right kind of support for you.
Helping you stay independent at home for longer, our DBS (criminal record) checked staff can help you with cleaning, odd jobs, shopping and gardening.
Our coffee mornings are a great opportunity to meet new people, in a relaxed and friendly environment. Coffee mornings are held every Tuesday from 10.30am – 12pm at Alberta Court, Teignmouth.
