At the heart of Good Neigbours, The Hayling Island Voluntary Care Group is giving a bit of time to help people get out and about. These little bits of help add up and make a real difference to people's lives.
"The reason so many people volunteer with Good Neighbours groups is the flexibility it offers".
Do you want to be involved in something meaningful but don't want to feel over committed? The best kept secret is that the time you give is flexible. Driving fits around your life, work, family commitments, including time out for holidays and leisure.
We are looking for good neighbours - use your own car to help with transport to hospital or GP appointments, opticians and dentists. This is a worthwhile and rewarding volunteering opportunity that can help older people from becoming lonely and isolated.
Can be based at home but client visits required.
