What we do

 

Sid Valley Help has about 30 volunteers and trustees (at March 2022) and our current activities are:

  • we support around 25 vulnerable households with social visits and help with shopping

  • we operate a signposting service with a website and telephone and email contacts that provides information on local, county and national health and social care services

  • in conjunction with the Sidmouth Wellbeing & Health Action Team (WHAT) we organise and raise funding for local mental health projects such as Headlight peer groups and mentoring for young people and I-Belong training; last year we spent £18,000 on this

  • we hold network meetings and training sessions for Sidmouth's voluntary health and social care organisations

  • we attend the weekly NHS Community Health & Social Care team meetings

  • we cooperate with Sidmouth Hospice at Home in the Information Centre at 48 High Street, Sidmouth

  • we work closely with other local and national voluntary organisations trying to identify gaps in provision and we try to fill them.
