Welcome to Totnes Caring
Celebrating over 27 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. In particular our support is for the relief of the elderly and sick to enable them to live in their own homes, to help them remain independent and not be isolated from everyone else.
We provide services to vulnerable people, in particular the elderley and the sick, who live in Totnes and its surrounding areas, and who are registered with the Leatside or Catherine House 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.
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 170 volunteers supporting over 1,400 clients.
