What is a Good Neighbour Scheme?

A Good Neighbours Schemes is a community initiative set up and run by volunteers to provide help and support to people in need within their local area.

A scheme is managed by a small group of volunteers that act as coordinators. Anyone in need of help can contact the scheme (usually via a single telephone number) and the coordinator on duty will link them up with someone suitably skilled and with the time available to provide the help required. It's as simple as that!
