Seaton & District Hospital League of Friends is a voluntary organisation which supports the work of Seaton hospital. We are able to provide much needed equipment and comforts for the benefit of patients and staff through the income raised by the work of our volunteers and from kind donations.

Seaton & District Hospital League of Friends also funds Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home (formerly the Home Nursing Service), which provides expert nursing care to adults registered with a Beer, Colyton or Seaton GP who wish to remain at home at the end of life. The service also provides advice and support to carers and families of people with end of life care needs.

With the help of volunteers, the league are able to provide a ward visiting service,  a hospital kiosk, a charity shop in the town and run a community group.

Seaton & District Hospital League of Friends was formed in 1984 and received charity status in 1985, before the hospital was built. The hospital was built two years later in 1987 and a contribution was made by the League towards the cost of the Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Units. In 1995 an Acute ward was added, paid for by the League.

The Constitution states that it is “to relieve patients and former patients of the Hospital and other invalids in the Community who are sick, convalescent, disabled, handicapped, infirm or in need of financial assistance and generally to support the charitable work of the Hospital”.
