The Warnford and West Meon Care Group was established to respond to the needs of residents in our villages, to act in cases of personal emergency and give support in times of stress. It also acts as a watchdog over the welfare of our community both young and old.
The Group is entirely run by volunteers and is wholly reliant on voluntary donations. Our AGM is held in October.
What We Do
We can help villagers get to local appointments such as the GP, hospital, dentist or optician where either public transport is not available or the individual is unable to get themselves to the appointment. We do ask for a donation towards the cost involved.
The Group owns a lightweight wheelchair which can be loaned for short term use.
We can advise on the use and funding of the Lifeline pendant alarm service provided by Winchester City Council for vulnerable or elderly residents.
Can You Help?
If you could spare a few hours occasionally we would welcome you as a volunteer driver or in some other role. The regular users of our service like to meet new people and would be very appreciative of any help you can offer.
