Northallerton & District Voluntary Service Association has recently developed a new project for people in the Northallerton & Bedale area.
The Good Neighbour Scheme is about putting people in touch with others in the local community who may need a little assistance with day-to-day tasks. It involves spending a little time helping with one-off activities or regular tasks for neighbours needing a helping hand.
Good Neighbour Volunteers offer low-level support to neighbours in the local community who may need a little assistance with small, everyday tasks.
Volunteers can decide what sort of help they are able to offer and how much time they want to give. A small offer of help can make a big difference. For more information contact Denise Sisk on 01609 780458.
