Good Neighbour Schemes

East Sussex County Council is working with five community and voluntary organisations to set up Good Neighbour Schemes across the county. 

These Schemes link people who need some support with volunteers from their community who are able to help. 

The support includes befriending and can include practical help such as
  • collecting shopping, pensions or prescriptions, 
  • small household jobs
  • helping with pets
  • letter writing and form filling.

Groups and the areas they cover

To make it easier to find a group near you, we’ve made a list of them -  browse the full list of current groups and the areas they cover.

Examples

Examples of how the Scheme has already helped local people can be found in East Sussex County Council's press release.
