Our Aim is, with voluntary support, to improve the quality of life of those in need with our community.
That community now stretches throughout Kingsteignton to Newton Abbot and the surrounding villages.
In 2017 we secured a grant for a year from the Big Lottery’s Awards for All Programme to employ a coordinator to develop more patient support services in Kingskerswell and the surrounding villages alongside Sharing Care. By November Kerswella Care was born.
We are now also working with representatives from Buckland who are establishing a patient support group there – BuSS

Come in and get: information, advice, support, somebody to talk to, a cup of tea (or coffee), some mental stimulation. Please bring with you a partner, family member or a friend.
Who runs the Café? The café is run by staff and experienced volunteers from KingsCare League of Friends. The volunteers are there to welcome you, look after you and serve refreshments.
