Good Neighbour Scheme

Our volunteer-run scheme offers short term practical support to people in North Walsham.

All our volunteers are vetted and live locally. They are managed by a local committee, supported by Community Action Norfolk.
Whatever you need we will try to offer help or find a solution. The service, run by volunteers, is free – apart from travel expenses for lifts and the costs of any materials needed for a job.

North Walsham Good Neighbour Scheme



Do you need some kind of practical help at home or can you offer some help?

Maybe a lift somewhere, or someone to talk to?
The Good Neighbour Scheme offers support to people in North Walsham with one-off jobs like:
• mowing the lawn
• changing a light bulb
• retuning the TV
• taking you to an appointment or shopping
• collecting library books
• filling in forms or writing letters
• helping you tidy up
• walking your dog
• just listening and having a chat
• giving information about local services


We are local volunteers who willingly give of our time to help others in North Walsham who need a hand and cannot find help elsewhere. We are keen to build a network of support in our community and using the resources of our community to enable people to live independent and purposeful lives.


We give practical short term help to anyone in North Walsham who needs and requests it. One-off jobs might include giving someone a lift to go shopping or visit a relative in hospital; changing a light bulb or clearing an overgrown garden; filling in a form or walking a dog – we will try to respond whenever possible.

If you would like to find out more about helping others in your local community, call us on 01692 558321 or send an email to
