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:
- 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.
