Existing Good Neighbour Schemes

Daventry District

 

Moulton

Moulton was the first village in Daventry District to adopt a Good Neighbours Scheme and it has been operating successfully since April 2017.

It is co-ordinated by Mary-Jane Brown, a Community Connector who is works alongside Moulton Parish Council and Moulton Surgery to improve health and wellbeing in the village and it's surrounding area.

The scheme has a range of volunteers offering befriending as well as help with travel. Volunteers run a weekly games morning, plus regular coffee and cake afternoons and even sunday roasts. 

Recently the scheme has started a Beginners Jogging Group and put on a number of Otago demonstrations.

Crick

The Crick Good Neighbour Scheme is managed by Crick Parish Council and run by two Parish Councillors, Sue maguire and Marilyn Harding, with a host of local volunteers having signed up to help.

The Scheme is to provide day-to-day support for ther residents who may need help on an occasional or regular basis.

The aim is to support neighbours to maintain a good quality of life, remain independent in their own homes if they wish to, and reduce their reliance on statutory health and care support systems. The scheme is to help anyone who is in need of support, such as the elderly, infirm, new mothers and the isolated. Whether that be needing a list to a hospital appointment, help with the food shop, help connecting with ther parishioners, right down to needing help to change a lightbulb!

For more information see the Crick Parish Council website.
