Recipient Org: Description Blackdown Support Group was established as a registered charity in 1991. Its aim is to harness the skills and compassion of its "local community to provide a caring service to add to the care provided by the Primary Health Care team working in the area of the Blackdown practice". It operates across twenty parishes, within the District Council areas of Mid and East Devon, and Taunton Deane, Somerset. Set up to meet those health and social care needs which largely fall outside the remit of most statutory service providers, by providing a locally based, flexible service, via a small army of local volunteers, it offers a cost-effective range of practical and social support to the rurally scattered and often isolated communities of the Blackdown Hills.
