Need a lift to a medical appointment? Need a friend for support and companionship?
Modbury Caring is a registered charity (charity registration number 1070237) which was formed in 1998 and is run by a voluntary management committee. Our aims are to provide befriending and transport services, benefitting people in need who live in the area covered by Modbury Health Centre. Our funding comes from members’ subscriptions and from donations; small grants from many parish councils and fund-raising events, including the “100 Club”, organising and taking part in fairs and fetes, street collections – and anything else we can think of!
For patients who have no other means of getting to and from the Health Centre, local hospitals and other medical appointments such as dentists or opticians, Modbury Caring’s team of DBS checked drivers can assist with your transport needs.
Do you have time to spare? Are you friendly and approachable and enjoy chatting with others? Could you offer to help transport those unable to drive themselves to and from their medical appointments (a mileage allowance and parking expenses are paid)? Are you interested in giving something back to your community? If the answer to these questions is YES, could you become a volunteer for Modbury Caring? Please complete our contact form.
