Age UK Dorchester - Good Neighbours

A Good Neighbour scheme for anyone over 50 who may struggle with a one off task that a volunteer Good Neighbour could help with. The scheme covers the Dorchester, Weymouth and Portland areas.

We suggest a minimum donation of £3 per task to help cover expenses. Examples of things we could help with include:

  • changing a light bulb
  • changing the batteries in hearing aids, remote controls etc.
  • taking some rubbish to the tip
  • sewing on buttons or turning up hems
  • re-tuning a TV or a basic computer problem task
  • collecting a prescription
  • reaching a high cupboard
  • walking a dog or getting in some shopping if a person is unwell
  • sweeping a front path or moving some light furniture
  • and much more!

All our volunteers are DBS checked and have received training on visiting people in their homes and confidentiality.
