General information

Transport

We have a team of volunteer drivers who will take you to any medical appointment, wait and then return you home again afterwards. The drivers are paid by the charity for their mileage and all we request is a donation towards these costs.

Befriending

We have a team of volunteers as well as staff who are able to visit, or meet out in the community, to befriend and provide social interaction for the elderly, vulnerable and those in need.

Palliative Care and Cancer Liaison Service

Dartmouth Caring’s palliative Care and Cancer Liaison service provides support and advice to patients with any life limiting illness and also to those who may be newly diagnosed with a cancer diagnosis who are currently undergoing treatment.
