Acorn Community Support

ACORN COMMUNITY SUPPORT are a voluntary group and a Registered Charity offering assistance to all adult members of the community within the Teign Valley & Cheriton Bishop GP Practice area. We work closely with our GP's to provide a wide range of supplementary services as listed below. In particular we help the frail and the elderly to live at home independently. In general, we aim to provide opportunities for retired members of the community to socialise and help each other.                            

Dunsford Wednesday Coffee Club. A great place to socialise in the winter, 10am to 12noon every week, between October and April.
Teign Valley Memory Cafe.  Twice a month - afternoons on the 2nd Thursday and mornings on the last Thursday of each month in Dunsford; meeting point for those with memory problems.
Tuesday Lunch Club. Aimed at those who have difficulty getting out. We collect you by minibus and lunch at various local venues.
Medical Appointments. Hospital, dentist, optician, chiropodist, GP surgery: we can get you there given sufficient notice.
Prescriptions. We can deliver prescriptions to your home.
Sainsbury's. Minibus service to Sainsbury's, Alphington, on alternate Thursday mornings.
The Acorn MinibusMinibus Hire. Organised groups can hire our 10 seat minibus at subsidised rates. Drivers sometimes available.
