A beacon of devotee care
Welcome to the Devotee Care Office (DCO) at Bhaktivedanta Manor. We are part of a global initiative to ensure that devotees in our community are spiritually happy, materially well-situated and positively identifying with ISKCON as a caring society.
Bhaktivedanta Manor’s vision is:
“We are a beacon of devotee care in the UK and the world.”
To this end in January 2023 a Devotee Care Office (DCO) was established to primarily focus on three areas:
1) Education – through the systematic delivery of the Devotee Care courses
2) Networking – creating connections and a directory between caregivers and recipients of care.
3) Showcasing – best practice Devotee Care projects and learnings – with the wider ISKCON community for the purposes of sharing and inspiring one another.
The Devotee Care Course (Embedding Care into Krishna Conscious Communities) describes a Spectrum of Care which includes 12 Areas of Care and 12 Recipients of Care. These are in no way exhaustive, but a powerful compass for directing the implementation of this important initiative.

The Devotee Care (DC) initiative is a recent initiative of the ISKCON Governing Body Commission (GBC), with an aim to “Embed the Culture of Care” within the devotee communities. In this light, a course has been designed, with the purpose that those who have come to the lotus feet of Krishna and Srila Prabhupada may positively identify themselves with ISKCON as a caring society and thus remain active in Krishna Consciousness till the last movement of their lives.
