Welcome to the Teddington and Hampton Wick Voluntary Care Group
We are a group of friendly volunteers who assist the elderly, the disabled and others in our local area who need a helping hand.
The group is a registered charity and was established in 1975. It is managed by an elected committee of volunteers and employs part time co-ordinators to run the small office in the local Methodist church which is open to the public from 9.30 - 11.30am Mon to Fri.
Help With Shopping
Three days a week our volunteers organise and run shopping trips to Tesco's in Teddington. We collect and return residents from their front door using RaKAT (Richmond and Kingston Accessable Transport) Community Buses.
Many of our volunteers help the local residents with tasks such as collecting prescriptions from their local pharmacist.
Lifts for Medical Treatments
We can provide assistance taking residents for medical treatments including to local hospitals, GP surgeries, dentists, clinics and chiropodists.
A friendly face is always available to visit isolated people in need of a little company and friendship and can help with some household paperwork.
