The Ashes Good Neighbour Scheme launches on 19th October 2023. Its objective is to enable volunteers to help older and vulnerable people get out and about to their appointments. Volunteering is flexible to suit your lifestyle with no regular commitment required. The scheme will be offering residents of Ash, Ash Vale, and Ash Green, transport to appointments such as doctors, hospital, and dentist; visit to the library or a club; help with shopping; or simply a friendly chat over a cup of tea. All volunteers who will have face-to-face contact with clients have undertaken a DBS check. It is not too late to volunteer; the scheme will always be open to new people joining. If you would like to know more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07935 515221.
