Find out more about our new volunteer buddy scheme

VODA recently launched a new Good Neighbours volunteer buddy scheme aimed to help support residents who have been shielding take their first steps back out into the world. We’ve put together this short video that explains more about the three roles – garden gate, walking and shopping buddy. If you would like to get involved please contact [email protected] or click on the links below.

  1. Good Neighbours Garden Gate Buddy: volunteers will offer a much needed socially distanced chat with a local resident who is feeling socially isolated. https://dev.voda.org.uk/opportunity/good-neighbours-covid-19-garden-gate-volunteer-746/
  2. Good Neighbour Walking Buddy: volunteers who will be there to enable residents to get outside again, explore the local area and regain their confidence with walking. https://dev.voda.org.uk/opportunity/good-neighbours-covid-19-walking-buddy-744/
  3. Good Neighbours Shopping Buddy: volunteers who can help support someone from who has been shielding to go out shopping for the first time since lockdown. https://dev.voda.org.uk/opportunity/good-neighbours-covid-19-shopping-buddy-volunteer-745/
