Good neighbour and voluntary car schemes provide support for people in the local community who need help with transport and some of the basics of day to day living such as shopping, moving heavy furniture or filling in a form.
The 2023 Surrey Good Neighbour Schemes Survey provides an overview into how voluntary car and good neighbour schemes have operated, adapted and changed over the year.
A total of 74 schemes were invited to take part in the survey and 41 responded – a response rate of 55%. Schemes have provided an update on demand (rising), volunteer recruitment (reducing), adoption of technology (increasing) and the number of requests that they responded to last year (over 16,000).
