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.
