Good Neighbours

Think of all the things we take for granted, like making a cup of tea, tidying the garden, picking up a few groceries from the shops or just doing the laundry. Imagine if you weren’t able to do this, through illness or incapacity, or if you were recouperating from a stay in hospital, who could you rely on?

Oaklea Good Neighbours is putting people together - those who need a little helping hand those who can regularly spare a few hours to volunteer in our communities.

If you would like to get involved and become a Good Neighbours volunteer, visit our volunteering page to find out more.

Home from Hospital

We can provide short term support for people who need a little bit of extra help in the weeks following a hospital stay. This might involve a helping hand with tasks that prove difficult such as grocery shopping. You can become a volunteer for both our Good Neighbours and Home from hospital projects.

Would you like to find out more? We can call you back.

Simply provide us a few details and we’ll call you at a time to suit you.
