Celebrating 28 Years of Serving the Community

Totnes Caring

Celebrating 28 years of serving the community

We are a registered charity offering much needed help and assistance to the elderly, disabled and vulnerable members of the community.

Our support is for the relief of the elderly and sick, to enable them to live in their own homes, remain independent and not be isolated from everyone else.

We provide services to vulnerable people, in particular the elderly and the sick, who live in Totnes and its surrounding areas.

To use our services you must be registered with either the Leatside or
Catherine House doctors surgeries.

We were originally set up in 1987 by doctors of the town to provide extra help and support for their patients. Since then the charity has expanded and now offers a range of services including transport, shopping, befriending, form filling, lunch clubs and more.

A large pool of willing workers

Totnes Caring has a large pool of workers who are mostly volunteers. People who willingly give their time to support clients in the community by driving them to appointments, befriending, shopping and much more.

We currently have over 200 volunteers supporting over 1,490 clients.
