About Bagshot Care

Bagshot Care is a totally voluntary local charity dedicated to helping Bagshot residents.  It was started with the encouragement of local health care professionals it matches people who have a need with volunteers who can help them – whether on a once-off or recurring basis.

Volunteers can say when they are, or might be, available and what type of task they would be willing to do (shopping, driving, visiting, DIY, etc). With approximately 50 volunteers at any one time it is their proud boast that, on average, they have provided help to a Bagshot resident every day since they started.

Volunteering

If you could spare an hour a month helping others, please ring the Bagshot Care given above.

Administration is very simple, some of the volunteers take it in turns to be coordinator. The above phone number is a mobile which, quite literally, gets passed on to whoever is coordinator for the day, together with the list of available volunteers.  The coordinators are always pleased to hear from anyone who can volunteer to help, or who needs help.

Volunteers are able to claim agreed expenses from the charity and the beneficiaries are invited to make a donation to the charity’s funds.

Bagshot Care is a Registered Charity.
