Acle and District Good Neighbour Scheme
This is a voluntary organisation where people who need a assistance can phone a central number and a volunteer will be asked to help out. All volunteers will be checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB). The Scheme is funded by grants from Broadland District Council, Norfolk Rural Community Council, Acle Parish Council and by local fundraising.
Services that might be included are transport to appointments at the doctors’ surgey, or at a hospital (45p per mile will be charged for petrol), occasional gardening, dog walking, help around the house, collecting shopping or library books or just a cup of tea and a chat.
If you are interested in joining as a volunteer please phone Pauline James on 01493 751070 or email [email protected]
There is a Tea & Talk drop in session every second Thursday of the month, at Acle Methodist Church, at 2.00pm.
Other than the above Tea & Talk, owing to the reduced number of volunteers, and the ongoing risk from Covid-19, we regret that it is unlikely that residents can be helped at present.
