Support NEDCare when you shop at the Co-op

The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects across the UK. When Co-op members buy selected Co-op branded products, they give local causes a helping hand.

We are a Community Fund Cause, meaning that you can select NEDCare as your cause to support when you shop at the Co-op. The Co-op give 2p from every pound spent on selected products and Co-op services to support community organisations like us.

When you support NEDCare in this way, funding goes towards subsidising the cost of care for people who can’t afford it.

Thank you to everyone who has chosen us as their cause so far!

Many Co-op members still haven’t chosen a cause to support, so become a member and show your support for NEDCare here.

Gift Aid on Donations

We have been a registered charity since last year, meaning we are able to offer Gift Aid on all eligible donations. This means that we will be able to claim an extra 25p for every £1 that is donated, and it also increases your tax relief.

For more information on Gift Aid, click here.

We rely heavily on donations, allowing us to continue to provide care for those who most need it in our local community. From leaving a Legacy Gift in your will, to donating an amount each month, there are several ways you can help. If you would like to donate, you can do so here.

4×4 Volunteer Force

Today is the launch of our 4×4 Volunteer force. You may have been up early enough to hear us on BBC Radio Devon. Incase you missed it here is what it is all about.

During the winter months our minds turn to the weather and all the things that can go wrong. Today we launched our ‘4×4 Volunteer Force,’ a call for volunteer 4×4 drivers who can help us get support to vulnerable people in north east Dartmoor at home during bad weather events.

So if you own a 4X4 vehicle that can cope with extreme weather and would like to help out in the case of an emergency please get in touch.

We can offer training and cover expenses. If you want to help with this project, please sign up using the form below. If you have any questions please email info@nedcare.org or call the office on 01647 279211.

Get on board with NEDCare!

The board of directors from North East Dartmoor Care are out and about this Autumn recruiting local carers to join their new team.The board will be drumming up interest in towns and villages such as Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Dunsford, Bridford, Lustleigh and Cheriton Bishop.

All new employees undergo extensive training to ensure that they provide the best possible service for the clients. As a not-for-profit, community owned agency, they aim to offer the best possible terms and conditions and welcome applicants who want to help build an excellent and responsive organisation.

In total NEDCare is looking to recruit 30 members of staff by Dec 2017 and can offer a range different positions depending on experience and can offer flexible working patterns. This increase in local employment is set to benefit the community and will stop carers from having to travel so far to each job.
