The IP3 Ipswich Good Neighbour Scheme helps people in the IP3 Postcode district with things they are unable to do themselves. It also aims to tackle loneliness within that area and to create a better and more community focused neighbourhood. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping in any of the following areas. For most roles other than befriending the commitment will be ad hoc and can often be done at a time to suit the volunteer
Shopping, Odd Jobs and Prescriptions Collection Volunteers
Work Party Volunteers eg Decorating, Gardening
A Friendly and Helpful Personality
Short Safeguarding Training
The purpose is to help residents in the IP3 Area of Ipswich with activities such as shopping, collecting prescriptions and odd jobs. We also offer befriending to lonely residents currently by telephone but hopefully face to face at a later date. We will also be setting up work parties for larger jobs. The group also intends to promote community through events and we also have a hardship fund available where needed.
