Good Neighbours groups in Hampshire
There are well over 100 voluntary groups in the Hampshire Network. Because they are independent they have a variety of names such as Neighbourcare or Voluntary Care Group and offer different services such as
- Taking people to GP, hospital and other health appointments
- Help with shopping
- Befriending or visiting services
- Coffee mornings, lunch and social clubs
- Minibus outings
Most groups have volunteers who use their cars to take people to health appointments. Some groups may offer practical help such as changing a light bulb, simple DIY or help with letter reading and paperwork.Good Neighbours groups are there for people who may not have anyone else to give them a bit of help when they need it. It’s always worth asking if a Good Neighbours group can help you.
