Good Neighbour Scheme

Are you, or someone you know, in need of some practical help with small tasks?  If so, the Good Neighbour scheme may be able to help.

The Good Neighbour scheme is a voluntary organisation which has been relaunched through Prama.  Its aim is to help people with small one off tasks they can no longer manage themselves.  We do ask for a small donation to cover administration costs.

Jackie Stafford is the Good Neighbour Co-ordinator for West Moors. Jackie explains: “These are small tasks where professional help is not needed, as our intention is not to take work away from the professional workforce. All our volunteers carry identity and are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked which ensures they are trustworthy and can be relied on.”

Officially launched at the West Moors Group Practice in October 2017, Good Neighbour now has keen volunteers on hand in the West Moors area with a variety of skills on offer.

The volunteers can help with a range of small tasks - here are a few examples of what they could do:

  • Change a lightbulb
  • Fill out a form
  • Take rubbish to the tip
  • Post a letter
  • Walk a dog
  • Small sewing jobs
  • Tune a television

For more information, please call 01202 804003, email: goodneighbours@prama.org.uk or ask the Practice for a leaflet.
