Home and Community Support Service

Community Support Service

Our home and Community Support Service has been operating for 75 years and provides a high quality flexible service to people aged 50 or over, living in and around the City of Plymouth.

Our flexible approach means a package of support can be provided to meet your changing needs giving you choices to enable you live independently in your home for longer. Our staff understand how some daily routines can become difficult or restrictive as you get older and our service can help you with everyday tasks that can become difficult to do without assistance. 


We can help with things like:
Domestic tasks such as polishing, dusting, vacuuming, washing floors, washing dishes, cleaning work surfaces, changing bed linen, laundry and essential grocery shopping. A one off 'spring clean' service is also available.


Our Community Support Service helps people to access opportunities in their local community with one to one support. 


We can help with attending appointments at GP's, dentist, hairdressers etc and assist with local shopping trips. Basic gardening and small jobs around the house such as curtain hanging, changing light bulbs etc. Support with reading and correspondence.


A Sitting Service which offers carers the opportunity to take a break from their caring role.
