Our Platinum Jubilee
We have been supporting older people across Devon for 70 years and want to celebrate the occassion with you!
Due to the latest advice and guidance we are putting in place measures to protect our clients, volunteers and staff.
From this week all office staff will work from home and staff who visit older people will follow strict hygiene rules to protect vulnerable clients.
Our phone lines will remain open and our Information and Advice team will be available.
We will continue to run our Enabling and Home Service for existing clients, ensuring we are following guidance set out by the government and Public Health England.
All Active in Later Life community activities and events have been suspended until further notice.
As the guidance surrounding the coronavirus (Covid-19) is evolving daily we will continue to review how we can best support older people across Devon during this difficult time.
We have been receiving a number of calls from people asking to volunteer with us during this time. As completing the volunteer application and training process can take several weeks we are suggesting, as Age UK is, that you consider becoming a Neighbourly Volunteer. This would allow you to provide support to older people in your community in a more timely manner.
To help you get involved we have produced a postcard that you can complete with key information (including our contact details) and post to older people in your area to let them know you are available should they need support.
If you are interested in volunteering with us in the future we would love to hear from you and will keep your contact details on file ready for when we are resuming normal service.
