Good Neighbour Schemes


Good Neighbour Schemes provide community based care and support for people in the local community who need help with some of the basics of day-to-day living.

Volunteers will donate their time to help their neighbours to help with things like:

  • Shopping
  • Visiting friends
  • Attending appointments
  • Pension and prescription collection
  • Moving a fridge or other heavy furniture
  • Writing a letter
  • Filling in a form

These schemes are operated by local volunteers for the benefit of their local communities, and can be a very rewarding experience for the volunteers, who provide an important service to their local community.

We are able to provide advice and support to individuals and groups wishing to start a new scheme, and can help existing schemes to thrive and grow.

If you would like to volunteer for a scheme, contact Vicki Turton, and she will signpost you to your nearest scheme, or contact Vicki if you are interested in starting a new scheme.
