We believe:

Volunteering is about PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE and an important part of life in today's world. 

Good Neighbours’ groups are unique in the way they work. They are organised locally and supported at a county level, with the aim to help people, not just to provide a service. We focus on people and help them, through acts of kindness (tasks) to stay independent, connected and part of their community.

Volunteering should be positive, worthwhile and fun. GNN volunteers do amazing things everyday. Self-help and mutual aid are the guiding principles for the network; put simply, this means that everyone is involved in a simple exchange from which everyone benefits.

EVERYONE NEEDS A GOOD NEIGHBOUR

'People Helping People' was launched in 2016 as our celebratory campaign for 40 years of Good Neighbours.

This simple message has proved so powerful (we note the slogan is being used by bank for its advertising campaign), and continues through everything we do, as we look forward to a NEW YEAR and a new campaign, people helping people will continue to influence and be at the heart of the Network.  

2019 will be the GOOD NEIGHBOURS YEAR OF KINDNESS
