The Estuary League of Friends site is now live and contains information on its many community and personalised services.
There is also news pages related to the charity’s latest activities.
The league of friends operates for people in Countess Wear, Clyst St Mary, Clyst St George, Ebford, Exton, Cat & Fiddle and Topsham.
Its extensive services include home visits, shopping and other trips, a lunch club and a monthly memory café for those with memory difficulties and their carers.
Rachel Gilpin, chief executive of the Estuary League of Friends, said: “The internet is now in almost 80% of homes across the UK and over 85% of the population have used it at some time.
“About half of the over-60s use it at least occasionally, and of course their families and friends are almost certainly very familiar and comfortable with the internet.
“So this is a valuable way to spread the word about what we do and to encourage more people to sign up to our services.”
Ms Gilpin added: “We’re also developing a growing range of more personalised services, customised to the needs of individual clients.
“The internet may grow into a useful tool for people seeing what we do and approaching us with ideas for the future.”
