Social Opportunities

Helping you spend time with others

Advanced booking for our lunch clubs is essential. Booking is not necessary for our Coffee Morning. Transport is available for all of our social groups.

We provide regular low-cost lunches in various villages in the local area as well as our popular coffee morning. Come and meet or make friends and treat yourself to a nutritious freshly cooked meal.

One of the most common issues with living in a rural community is loneliness, especially for those who find it difficult to leave the house. Blackdown Support Group has volunteers who visit people in their homes, perhaps make a cup of tea, do a crossword or a game or just call regularly to talk and share stories. It is often all that is needed.

We are also a provider of Time for You, a sitting service funded by Devon County Council which involves a volunteer sitting with an elderly or infirm client to enable their carer to take a break.
