Good Neighbour Schemes

Good Neighbour schemes are local voluntary groups which offer a service in their community for those in need of help and support.

They offer befriending and practical help to older people - whether it's transport, collecting repeat prescription, walking the dog, tidying up the garden, taking someone to hospital, doing a bit of shopping or changing a light bulb. The service aims to help people to stay independent, safe and well.

The Community Information Network is teaming up with Volunteer Link Up to encourage more people, to join or set up a Good Neighbour Scheme. If you have some time to spare, Volunteer Link Up would like to hear from you.

If you are thinking of setting up a Good Neighbour Scheme or have already set one up but need some support, Volunteer Link Up can provide you with the tools and guidance to make it work. Those establishing a new scheme can apply to a start-up fund to help with the initial set-up.

'The Good Neighbour Scheme Support Service’ is run by Volunteer Link Up, working with AgeUK Oxfordshire as part of the Community Information Network, (a project funded by Oxfordshire County Council) - we support Good Neighbour Schemes in Oxfordshire – helping local communities to set up a new scheme or helping existing schemes to run efficiently.

Want to get involved?  Become a Good Neighbourhood Scheme volunteer!

We want every community in Oxfordshire to have a Good Neighbour Scheme so that people have a group to turn to if they need help or support. We are encouraging more people to join one and become part of this vital service. You don’t need a lot of time to become a volunteer or to set a new scheme up in your area; if you’ve an hour a week or more to spare, Volunteer Link Up would like to hear from you.
