Bishopsteignton care watch
The Healthy Living Group formed by the Parish Council is starting a Care Watch was launched in January 2016. It is a Good Neighbour scheme so that people who may need an occasional helping hand can phone a coordinator who will put them in contact with a volunteer who will help them. The scheme will not replace professional help or the help of charities. We have the support of the local police, fire service and doctors.
the scheme doesn't have a website
If you live in Bishopsteignton and wish to be a volunteer for the Bishopsteignton Care Watch then look out for one of our leaflets in one of the local shops or at the surgery and it will give a number to ring. If someone needs help they will ring the Care Watch and a coordinator will put them in touch with a volunteer who will go to help if they can. Volunteers will be asked to only simple tasks such as feeding a pet whilst a person is at a medical appointment or fetching a prescription in bad weather, for example. If you want help then you can pick up a leaflet at one of the shops in the village which will give you the phone number to ring.
