Richmond Good Neighbours is run by a part-time organiser, who can be contacted between 9.00am -12.00 noon every week day on 020 3538 4060. Out of office hours there is an answering machine and messages will be responded to at the earliest opportunity. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Visitors are welcome at the office.
Nearly sixty volunteers provide services entirely free of charge. These services might include shopping on behalf of a client or indeed taking the client shopping, driving to and from medical or dental appointments, transportation to and from social clubs or to meet with friends and occasional gardening. We also offer a visiting and befriending service. In short we offer most of the tasks of a non-specific nature such as might be offered by a ‘good neighbour’. We are happy to provide these services on a regular basis e.g. weekly or on a more ad hoc basis. All our volunteers are checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service and our clients’ confidentiality is respected at all times.
