Why don't you help the Blackdown Support Group as a volunteer?  Think about helping others now!

All out of pocket expenses are met.

Footcare

For many people the simple act of cutting their toe nails has become difficult.  We are appealing for volunteers to come and be trained.  All equipment is supplied and volunteers are reimbursed for their expenses.

Transport

Could you spare the time to drop someone at the local surgery, or into town for a dentist appointment, deliver a prescription, or share your shopping trips.

Visiting

Sitting with someone to give their carer some time off, or visiting an isolated elderly person.

Spending time with a young family when parents are struggling to cope.

Mentoring

Short term support for someone going through a rough patch.

Advocacy

Help fill in forms.

I will be interested to hear what is involved in being a driver for the group. I live in Culmstock, have my own car and a clean license but have never done this type of volunteering before. I am 65 yrs old and am a regular attendee at the Blackdown Practice.
