Welcome to Good Neighbours

Supporting Local People

At Good Neighbours we aim to reduce feelings of loneliness and provide meaningful social time making people feel connected and valued.

We do this with volunteers that have awareness in safeguarding and making positive connections.

At Good Neighbour, we offer:

  • Weekly, roughly hour long, phone calls for a friendly chat.
  • Visit a person for an hour once a week (usually for around 12 weeks).
  • Meet for a short walk or cafe trip.
  • Connect a person to a local group or community activity.
  • Collect things you need in the case of accident and emergency.

Because our team are volunteers and there are risks and challenges to our work, we have a list of things we cannot offer:

  • Being the sole responsible carer for a person whilst family or friends run errands / take respite.
  • Personal care - bathing, dressing, feeding/drinking and administering medication, moving and handling (including wheelchairs)
  • Household - cooking, cleaning, repairs, gardening
  • Administration - completing forms, contacting providers, arranging services, banking
  • Transporting the person for any reason

45 minutes a week | 12 weeks | Low impact | Big Difference.

We deliver a service that provides 12 weeks of 1:1 low-impact chair-based activity in a person's own home.  The service is for people that are at risk of falls due to health, injury or a condition.

After 12 weeks, the aim is that the person can build the confidence and mobility to be able to access social or physical activities in their neighbourhood.

Our service is delivered by our team of friendly volunteers that provide reassurance and encouragement, they are not physios or trainers and this creates a calm, no-pressure atmosphere allowing the person to lead the pace.  The average session takes around 45 minutes.

If you want to know more, contact Steve.

Refer a person for our low-impact chair-based exercises.

If you'd like to get involved or find out more about volunteering as a Good Neighbour contact our co-ordinators for a no-pressure conversation.

Our volunteering process:

  1. You make an initial inquiry
  2. We invite you for an informal chat
  3. If we both agree this is for you, we will gather some contact details and availability
  4. When the right person comes along you will be matched and your volunteering begins
