The care group supports the four villages of East and West Tytherley, East Dean and Lockerley. It was formed in 1992 when it became apparent that some people were falling through the net of support previously provided by either social services or local family members.
There are seven co-ordinators whose names are printed in the monthly news letter and there are about 30 active volunteers who are able to carry out requests for help.
Most requests involve taking people to appointments at hospitals. These are not easily accessible as the villages are on the borders of Hampshire and Wiltshire and the hospitals include Southampton, Romsey, Salisbury, Lymington, Basingstoke and Winchester.
Volunteers are able to claim travelling expenses and clients are encouraged to make a donation to funds if they are able to do so. These donations, together with continued funding from the Hampshire Voluntary Care Groups mean that the group remains financially viable.
The group’s actions are not limited to transport and other services we can provide include:
We will always need your help in some way so if you want any more information please contact
