About this cause
We provide short-term support to local residents through befriending, simple DIY, lifts to appointments, shopping and collecting medicines, dog walking, providing information and signposting to services and activities. We provide volunteering opportunities to those willing to provide neighbourly support. This develops mutual support and friendship within the community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The project would have a steering group of diverse individuals and groups in the town. It would bring individuals and groups across the community together at meetings and contact points. It would give them a voice on local needs. It would empower local people and groups, build on their skills to help themselves and others, and increase confidence, collaboration and knowledge.
