Moorland Community Care Group is a local charitable organisation whose aim is to provide friendly support to elderly and isolated people in our community.
Support offered includes befriending, practical help such as shopping or gardening, advice and information, benefits checks, lunch clubs, and support after hospital discharge.
Moorland Community Care Group was formally constituted in 2016 following the success of its original incarnation as Bovey Community Care. Our area of operation covers the Dartmoor towns of Bovey Tracey, Ashburton and Buckfastleigh and surrounding parishes.
We operate through three locally manned organisations: Bovey Community Care, Ashburton Community Care and Buckfastleigh Community Care, each of which is specific to that town and supported by local volunteers.
Moorland Community Care Group is a part of the Southern Devon Wellbeing Partnership which also includes several local organisations with similar remits. We provide Wellbeing services to patients registered at local surgeries enabling them to make improvements in their own lives and to take control of their health conditions.
The Group is managed by a board of trustees.
Local coordinators in Bovey and Ashburton see to the day-to-day running of the three local organisations. Volunteers are recruited from local people and are our greatest asset.
