Good Neighbour Support

 

Essential Shopping

Providing essential shopping for a person who is unable to shop for themselves and does not have anyone else who can help. It’s likely that this will be a one-off shop but we can provide short term support for up to 3 weeks and try to find a longer-term solution if necessary.

PLEASE NOTE: we use and online system to process payments and reimburse volunteers so the beneficiary has to be able to provide their bank details to a member of the team or be able to set themselves up on the system.

Walking to Wellness (Previously known as Health Walks)

Walking to Wellness is short walks from a local community centre that aim to help people with low mobility go for a short walk in a non-pressuring environment and meet afterward at the community centre for a drink and a biscuit and a chance to spend some time with other people. The walks are led by trained volunteers and at the community centres people have the chance to meet and talk to their local wellbeing worker.
