What would I be doing?

As a Good Neighbour Shopping Buddy, you could be an invaluable help to someone who cannot otherwise do their essential shopping due to immobility, health or shielding issues. It’s likely that these will be one-off shops but that you may deliver shopping to a number of different people around Warrington, on separate occasions.

You will be given a shopping list in advance and once the shopping is complete you will be fully reimbursed via bank transfer upon proof of a receipt.

What skills do I need?

You must be able to drive and have access to your own vehicle.
Anybody can be a Good Neighbour volunteer as long as you have empathy and a desire, commitment and willingness to help people in the community who need it.
