Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care in England.

They regulate care provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies and voluntary organisations. They aim to make sure better care is provided for everyone – in hospitals, care homes and people's own homes. They also seek to protect the interests of people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.

The Devon Advocacy Consortium

They provide an independent, professional advocacy service for people over the age of 16 in Devon.

'We take action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and to get the services they need. Advocates can visit you at home or a place of your choice and if an advocate can’t help they can find someone who will.'

Ashley House Printing Company

Ashley House have been working with us to provide high quality printed materials and we're extremely happy and grateful for their help and support. If you see their logo on something that we send you it is because they have sponsored it. Not only are they helpful but they are also very environmentally conscious and many of the materials they've printed for us have been to use up space on paper that would normally have been cut off for recycling.

 


Age Positive: rather than talk about ‘the elderly’, ‘pensioners’ or ‘OAPs’, which can be excluding or have negative connotations, we use the term ‘older people’. Age UK Exeter is committed to helping people love later life.
