EBC's Charities of the Year

Exeter Business Club is proud to support two charities every year and for 2014 we have chosen to support two local charities: Devon In Sight and Honeylands Children's Centre.

dis logoDevon in Sight is a local charity providing a range of practical help and advice to people affected by sight loss, with the aim of promoting independence, wellbeing and choice.

Our main Resource Centre is based in Topsham near Exeter, where we provide information on sight loss issues and the support available to you, a range of equipment designed for people with sight loss, Low Vision Services and other Training. We also run a Volunteer Visiting Service in Torbay and Mid-Devon. We are here to support you to live independently and to live life to the full. Please contact us so we can discuss how we can help you. We are a small charity that relies on the commitment of our volunteers and generosity of our supporters. If you would like to help make a difference do get in touch.

honeylandsHoneylands Specialist Child Assessment Centre is an NHS service for young children with complex special needs in Pinhoe Road, Exeter.

It offers a unique service to over 90 children and families from the Exeter, East and Mid Devon areas. Honeylands has an international reputation for its ethos and multidisciplinary team of staff who bring all the services for these children and their families together on one site. Honeylands Children’s Charity is a group of parents, friends and staff, who raise funds so that these special children and their families get the very best help and support - above and beyond what is provided by the state.

Since 1974, we have been making a huge difference by:

  • Providing equipment and resources for children and families that the NHS cannot.
  • Helping to start completely new services as requested by patients and staff, and working with statutory bodies to secure mainstream funding, for example the Toy Library and Music Therapy.
  • Coordinating regular fundraising activities and special events to build a lasting and effective charitable legacy

Honeylands delivers services of excellence that have an enormous impact on the future development of children with complex special needs. Our charity supports this work by ensuring that the staff can do the very best for the children, regardless of the availability of national funding.
