"I’d like to thank Good Neighbours for helping me in my hour of need with transport to various venues in Cardiff. It has always been service with a smile when receiving assistance in person, and the Administrators are very pleasant on the phone. The charity provides an excellent and very much-needed service in the difficult times we live in."
PA. - A Client
Helping clients maintain independence at home.
Our main criterion is that the client’s need must be genuine. We apply a non-discrimination policy and welcome new clients irrespective of their sex, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or background.
Clients can refer themselves to us, or may be referred by friends, neighbours, family, churches, businesses or statutory organisations (e.g. GPs, Adult Services, Hospital Discharge, Police etc.).
As our name implies we seek to be a “good neighbour” and complement the support that may already be available from friends, family or other organisations.
We do not run any group activities as there are many of these in and around north Cardiff. We can, however, provide lists of these and provide transport to get people to and from the activities they choose to attend.
We take people to and from GP appointments, hospital appointments, luncheon clubs, hairdressers, dentists, social groups, visits to friends etc.
We can do the shopping for the housebound or accompany clients who prefer to do their own shopping but need assistance.
A volunteer will call in for a friendly chat.
