We are a registered charity whose aim is to promote the independence, physical and mental well-being of older, isolated or vulnerable people living in Kingsbridge, Salcombe and the surrounding area.

Volunteer-led Support in Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Neighbouring Villages

We provide services not normally available through statutory agencies.

Our services are delivered by a team of volunteers, keen to provide friendship and support to those who need it. Our volunteers have the opportunity of using their life skills and experiences, finding fulfilment in making a difference.

The benefits of this service can be an improved sense of well-being and reduced feelings of isolation, as well as the preservation of independence for as long as possible, this can delay or avoid the need to move into a retirement home or become institutionalised.

Where Kingsbridge And Saltstone Caring are unable to help, we will always seek to signpost to other organisations that can provide the support required.

Kingsbridge And Saltstone Caring work closely with health professionals to ensure clients have access to all the support that is available to them. Part of our volunteers’ remit is to feed back any concerns so that we can seek help where appropriate.

Our volunteers receive initial and ongoing training and therefore improve their own skills and knowledge over time. If you want to find out more about volunteering call us on 01548 854588.

If you know someone who could benefit from the services we offer, please download our Client Referral Form


Examples of support include

  • companionship
  • shopping or assisting with a shopping trip
  • local outings, e.g. a trip out for a cup of tea or a visit to a garden centre
  • accompanied transport to social activities
  • hospital discharge support
  • carer relief
  • signposting to other helpful organisations

What do we do?

Saltstone Caring offers a free befriending service to the lonely and isolated of all ages, providing companionship and support to the housebound.


Who refers a client?

Sometimes a person refers themselves. Referrals can be made by statutory authorities, however, frequently a referral comes from a concerned neighbour, friend or relative.


What does a referrer do?

The referrer completes a referral form . When we receive this, we normally contact the potential client and arrange to visit. The visit is to assess the client’s needs in more detail.


What happens next?

Once we have a clear understanding of what is required we shall either:

  • Arrange a further visit with the client, together with carefully matched volunteer, to make introductions. At this point the client and volunteer decide upon a convenient day and time for visits to commence.
  • If the type of support is not what Saltstone Caring can offer, we endeavour where possible to provide information on other organisations or services that may be suitable.

Are we good at what we do?

Saltstone Caring has been in existence since 2006. The fact that is operational and in demand in challenging times is proof of its value and efficacy.


How do you know?

We invite you to look at our page of testimonials . Over the years, Saltstone Caring has received many messages of heart felt thanks from clients, their families, friends and neighbours. Saltstone Caring is currently undergoing improvement to measure success more effectively in order to attract regular funding streams.


Do we charge for the service we offer?

We don’t make a formal charge for our service. However we do ask for a donation to help with our costs if possible. For example, this could be a small contribution towards travelling expenses of our volunteers, although of course we accept donations of all sizes!

We are a charity and have to constantly raise money to continue our worthwhile work. Any donations can be passed to a volunteer (who passes it on to the organisation) or sent to the Saltstone office. Donations are now accepted online.


Volunteers Needed

We are an enthusiastic and friendly team who gain enormous pleasure from reaching out and helping others.

Our volunteers have the opportunity of using their life skills and experiences, finding fulfilment in making a difference.

Can you help with;

  • Companionship for the isolated and vulnerable, especially for those recently bereaved or convalescing.
  • Shopping and support following hospital discharge.
  • Help with socialising and getting out and about.
