Berkswich Good Neighbours

The aim of the Good Neighbour scheme is to involve people within the local community to offer practical support to resident neighbours, who through age or disability may feel isolated. Improving a person's health and wellbeing can lead to an independent life for longer whilst living in their own home. Social contact helps to keep people safe and well and can succeed in bringing the community together to help a person feel safe. It is difficult to imagine that someone may go for days without speaking to or seeing anybody. It can therefore mean that a small offer of help can make a big difference to someone who is lonely.
