Good Neighbours

Good Neighbours

Good Neighbours support people who are feeling lonely / socially isolated; have limited or no support around them and need help with the little things.   This could be anything from a friendly telephone call to help with carrying out a variety of practical tasks. Good Neighbours volunteers can:
 
  • Make weekly phone calls for a friendly chat
  • Meet for a weekly walk either one-to-one or as part of a group
  • Meet in an outside space for a chat e.g. in the garden or at a park
  • Accompany people to community groups and activities to help to build confidence
  • Collect essential shopping for up to 3 weeks for those who have no one who can help them out
  • Collect medication from a pharmacy for those who have no one who can help them out
  • Carry out simple one-off tasks in the home or garden 
  • Support with technology to help people to stay connected with friends and family 
  • Supporting someone with dementia to remain engaged in social activities
