Here for you and your community

Our Good Neighbours Schemes offer residents opportunities

  • to attend activities and events.
  • learn or teach a skill in one of the groups.
  • help out in any way that you would like to or just socialise and make new friends.
  • be part of the reference group that oversees the running of the Good Neighbours Scheme.

By being part of your local Good Neighbours Scheme helps improves local communities by

  • tackling isolation
  • expanding your own social circle and that of other residents
  • helping to build sustainable networks of mutual support
  • increasing the sense of neighbourliness
  • improving the health and wellbeing of local residents
  • providing positive activities for children and young people.

To be successful our Good Neighbours Schemes need local residents to get involved. They are built on an ethos of co-production and harness the strengths, ideas and passions that exist within your community. Working with us will improve your life and the lives of those around you.
