Sidmouth Hospice at Home We provide tailored care and support for people in the Sid Valley diagnosed as palliative, and their carers and families; we commission and fund specialist nursing and hospice beds. Our Volunteers provide support by driving (e.g. medical appointments and shopping), befriending, and in bereavement. We organise and signpost to wider support as required. The  Information Centre at 48 High Street is open

Sidmouth Voluntary Services 

New clients and volunteers are always welcome. SVS is at Twyford House in Coburg Road and provides a variety of services:

  • Cafe every morning from 9 to11 am - drop in for a chat or to relax with the daily newspaper or a book from our library.  Activities such as bingo take place with Lisa on Friday mornings.

  • Pick up free groceries from our Fare Share and Sidmouth SAVE Food Hub which collects food that would otherwise be wasted for use in our kitchens and distribution at the cafe.

  • The Lunch Club runs from Monday to Friday and offers a three course freshly prepared meal and a door-to-door minibus service is available for a small additional cost. Cooked lunches are delivered by volunteers to households who need it.
