Volunteers

Why not become one yourself? Most of our volunteers are busy people living busy lives, providing help from an hour to a day a month. The work is voluntary, informal and friendly. You can choose the tasks you would like to do, and if you would like to be a driver, fuel expenses are reimbursed.

How we work Several volunteer coordinators run our office from Monday to Friday, 8.30 - 5.30. Our 'office' is mobile, with the paperwork moving around coordinators' homes. On ringing our number 724242, a client obtains the number of the duty coordinator for the day, who will ring around the volunteers to find out who is available for the selected task. 

Good Neighbours is a registered charity.
