Didcot good neighbour scheme

Scheme information

Didcot Good Neighbours is a scheme which offers assistance to vulnerable, elderly and isolated people in the Didcot area. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and supported by local councils and organisations. We offer similar services to those of a neighbour, shopping, simple household tasks, form filling and reading. We also have a befriending service whereby our volunteer visits the client and keeps them company for a couple of hours. All volunteers are DBS checked.

Scheme coordinator

Kathryn Francis
I am the Co-ordinator of DGNS. I meet and recruit potential volunteers and visit new clients to assess their needs. I then match an appropriate volunteer with a client. If we are unable to offer assistance we will signpost the client to another service which may be more helpful.
