Please visit our DONATE page and help us maintain our services
We are a registered charity whose aim is to promote the independence, physical and mental well-being of older, isolated or vulnerable people living in Kingsbridge, Salcombe or the surrounding area.
We do so by providing services not normally available through statutory agencies.
Our services are delivered by a team of volunteers, keen to provide friendship and support to those who need it. Our volunteers have the opportunity of using their life skills and experiences, and finding fulfilment in making a difference.
Examples of support include
shopping or assisting with it
local outings, e.g. a trip out for a cup of tea, or a visit to a garden centre
accompanied transport to social activities
Hospital discharge support
signposting to other helpful organisations
The benefits of this service can be an improved sense of well-being and reduced feelings of isolation, as well as the preservation of the person’s independence for as long as possible, so delaying or avoiding the need to move into a retirement home or become institutionalised.
Where Saltstone Caring are unable to help, we will always seek to signpost to other organisations that can provide the support required.
Saltstone Caring work closely with health professionals to ensure clients have access to all the support that is available to them. Part of our volunteers’ remit is to feed back any concerns so that we can seek help where appropriate.
Our volunteers receive initial and ongoing training and therefore improve their own skills and knowledge over time. If you want to find out more about volunteering call us on 01548 854588.
