One Barnstaple

One Barnstaple is working in partnership with local statutory, voluntary and community services, community groups and residents to help coordinate the support needed in our local area during this current Covid-19 situation.

They are working with the existing community Facebook support groups to assist them in coordinating volunteers.

If you would like to offer your time as a volunteer please sign up using this form.

Barnstaple Coronavirus Support Network Facebook Group 

"This group is available for the residents of Barnstaple to reach out to each other for support during the Coronavirus outbreak. We currently have approximately 100 volunteers across the whole of Barnstaple, supporting those individuals and families in isolation. Within this group there will be friends, family, neighbours who might need a little more support; emotionally, or if they are needing to self-isolate.
Within this group you can give your services to others who need help, in the form of: collecting shopping; collecting prescriptions; urgent supplies; or even by having a friendly, welcome phone call to someone in isolation. Or if you are in isolation, you can post onto the group to find support from a neighbour.
This group is working alongside the Barnstaple Town Council and One Barnstaple to ensure support is provided to every individual resident of Barnstaple.
BCSN is continuing to grow rapidly because of the support and kindness shown by all of its members. Come and join us!"

Age Concern 

Paused on new home visit assessments. Current volunteers, advised to continue as they feel comfortable with. New referrals will be guided towards Telephone Care Line and Age Concern will be increasing this service as they are able. Phone 01271 324488

Save Westacott Park

Unofficial group where individual aid is being offered between residents nearby. See the Save Westacott Park Facebook page for more information.

Live at Home Scheme

Scheme to help prevent isolation and loneliness. Members can access the services in the Barnstaple area as you can see in the attached leaflet. Although at the minute we have postponed all groups apart from the telephone befriending, this is still allowing us to keep in contact with our members and perhaps do some shopping etc at this time if they have no one else. If there was anyone that would benefit from this that they can sign them up as members over the phone and be added to our telephone befriending list.
