Volunteering in Health
Volunteering in Health is a charity that supports lonely and isolated people in Teignmouth, Dawlish and Chudleigh, through transport to medical appointments, befriending, carer support, day trips, and more. Our team of 150 volunteers work tirelessly to support the people that need it most. All money raised is put back into our community, helping us to reach out and support more and more people.
Eight years ago, each of our local GP surgeries had their own voluntary car scheme. These came together to create Volunteering in Health. Since then the charity has gone from strength to strength, and transport is now just one of several services we offer to lonely, isolated, vulnerable and elderly people in Teignbridge, Devon. Due to a successful fundraising campaign in 2015 we now have two wheelchair accessible vehicles, allowing us to take more people out whether to essential medical appointments or on day trips.
