The Downland Volunteer Group (DVG) was founded in 1986 and operated from an old scout hut in Compton. Today we have more comfortable surroundings, being situated in a small office within the Doctor’s surgery, in Compton High Street.
We were set up to help people who are “elderly, sick or disabled, or anyone of any age who are otherwise in need”.
We are a registered company and registered charity and are run solely by volunteers.
In return for a donation towards our costs, we are able to help with transport to hospitals, doctors’ surgeries, opticians, dentists, and even shopping.
We also own a Handybus that does regular shopping trips, outings etc.
