Good Neighbours Support Service (GNSS)

GNSS grows and sustains local groups by providing resources, training and support for local people.

Good Neighbours Network

The Network  is made up of local independent groups which work with GNSS to develop services and promote themselves

From just 6 groups in 1976 it has grown to over a hundred groups that between them have nearly four thousand volunteers.

Good Neighbours Groups 

Individual groups are self- organised and run. They provide simple volunteer-led services in response to local demand for getting to health appointments, befriending, social activities or practical support at a time of need.

By being independent, groups are able to grow organically. They are driven by local concerns, not central, local or national government initiatives. Because the groups are almost entirely volunteer led and run they can offer personalised and sustainable services.

GNSS is funded in Hampshire by County Council and NHS Clinical Commissioning groups in Fareham and Gosport, North East and Farnham, North, South East Hampshire and West Hampshire. It is supported by Anglican Dioceses in Portsmouth, Winchester and Guildford. This funding and support enables GNSS to provide starter and continuation grants, learning cafes and events and work with local people to grow Good Neighbours groups and services.
