Good Neighbour Scheme
We are just starting a new initiative in partnership with colleagues from Thirsk Community Care and Northallerton and District Voluntary Service Association. The local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)…. the Health Service, are providing some funding for us to develop a “Good Neighbour Scheme”.
The idea is that elderly and vulnerable adults can contact our organisation if they need some support/assistance to carry out some everyday tasks. Eg. Collect a prescription, assistance with reading post/letters, shopping or more general tasks that a “good neighbour” could carry out.
We will be publicising this service shortly but are interested to know if any of our current Volunteers would be interested in supporting this initiative…..”going that extra mile” to help their Community. Our intention is to leaflet drop the neighbourhood of anyone who needs some help and hopefully recruit some new Volunteers to assist those in need who live close by. Existing Volunteers could help tremendously, particularly in the early stages of this project.
Please contact Phil Henderson at the office if you can help.
