Good Neighbour

paperwork, befriend and “natter”, put up shelves, change light bulbs

What does it do?

Do you need help with small tasks around the home or maybe just someone to pop in for a chat? Do you know someone who does?

Our Good Neighbour scheme was founded in April 2009. We provide volunteers to help with those simple tasks that our elderly or vulnerable clients find too difficult. For example, we can put up shelves, change light bulbs, collect shopping, help with paperwork or befriend someone who is otherwise isolated.
