Ottery Volunteers

During the COVID-19 crisis they will provide urgent support to the vulnerable (at risk), self-isolating and key workers within the community of Ottery St Mary and surrounding villages.
With a network of over 300 volunteers they are able to carry out various essential functions such as the collection and delivery of prescription medication and regular shopping trips. Working alongside the Ottery Help Scheme they offer befriending telephone support for those in need of someone to talk to during their isolation. Their volunteers also work with Ottery Foodbank, supporting their essential efforts. They also offer a mental health wellbeing service to our volunteers, run by volunteer healthcare professionals.
