Volunteering in Health is a charity based in Teignbridge, Devon which aims to improve the wellbeing of local people – patients, carers, and volunteers alike. We cover Teignmouth, Dawlish, Chudleigh, Bishopsteignton, Holcombe, and Shaldon.
Support for Patients
We offer a range of services for patients, including transport to and from hospital and other medical appointments, and a befriending service which is especially helpful for patients who are not able to get out and about much and are feeling lonely. We also hold regular Memory Café and Reminiscence Sessions.
Support for Carers
We offer a sitting service to provide carers with some respite time.
Become a Volunteer
We have a huge range of voluntary opportunities available, and will always do our best to identify an opportunity that fits your skills and interests. This could be befriending, driving, administration, fundraising, events planning, marketing… We have a fantastic team of volunteers, but can always find room for more!
Home Help Service
Our Home Help Service is designed to help patients keep their independence, so that they can stay living at home for as long as possible. The service could include cleaning, basic DIY, gardening, shopping. Please get in touch also if you would be interested in providing any of these services.
