Westbank Community Health and Care rely on an army of volunteers to help deliver a range of support services to individuals and communities across Devon. This year, we hope to take on even more volunteers to help more people in need across Devon.

Neighbourhood Friends volunteer Adam Giles-Wilson from Honiton says “As I live on my own, I can understand how some people feel - how the little things are very important to them, even if other people can’t see it or understand it. It makes you feel good, knowing that you are doing something positive and putting something back into the community, and it could just be a little bit of your time. It makes such a difference to someone who’s on their own.” 

Hear what volunteering means to Adam here:

Many people who live alone have no one else to support them and rely on Westbank’s volunteers for practical tasks like food shopping and prescription collection. Above and beyond this, the volunteers are ‘friendly faces’ and someone to talk to.

Last year, our Neighbourhood Friends volunteers received royal recognition for their service during the pandemic with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. Could you be a part of our fantastic award winning team?
