ALDBOURNE & BAYDON LINK GOOD NEIGHBOUR SCHEME
The scheme provides to assistance to anyone who may need to visit a hospital or surgery, is unable to collect shopping or needs a small task undertaking in the home. You may just like someone to call for a chat or to exchange a library book. If your particular need is not listed here, do not worry, just ask the coordinator. Link is not limited to any particular age group.
All requests for assistance should be made, by telephone, to the Link Scheme Coordinator, who will arrange for a volunteer to carry out the required task. The telephone line is backed up by an answering machine when the coordinator is unavailable.
All volunteers have been checked by the Criminal Records Bureau and are covered by a comprehensive insurance policy. There are many other Link schemes operating in Wiltshire, so there is a wealth of experience for our team to draw upon.
The service is confidential and free but volunteers will offer users an envelope and invite them to make a donation to the scheme if they so wish. All donations will be used to support the operation of the scheme.
