What is a Good Neighbour Scheme?
Good Neighbour Schemes are local, voluntary groups that offer a service in their community for older, vulnerable, and isolated people in need of help and support.
Across Oxfordshire there are around 80 Good Neighbour Schemes offering help in the local community.
The schemes help promote wellbeing for individuals, not only for the residents who benefit from the help they receive but also for the volunteers who are giving something back to the community.
If you are thinking about setting up a Good Neighbour Scheme in your community and would like advice and support, please contact the Good Neighbour Scheme Co-ordinator, Martha Holland, on 01993 776277 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
