Don't underestimate the power of giving your time.

What We Do

The Abingdon Good Neighbour Scheme is a voluntary initiative run by a group of local residents who want to help people in their locality to enjoy a better quality of life by offering them companionship and support with every day tasks.

We have a team of volunteers, all DBS checked, who can help with tasks like shopping, dog walking, form filling and letter writing, collecting prescriptions, one-off gardening tasks, using the internet and basic DIY tasks that some people may find difficult.  We can also arrange for a volunteer to visit for a cup of tea and a chat on a regular basis, if you are feeling isolated or lonely.
