Good Neighbours


Our Good Neighbours project is all about providing free, voluntary support to those in North Tyneside who struggle with day-to-day tasks. 


The Good Neighbours project recruits, trains and supports volunteers to undertake a variety of practical tasks commonly associated with those carried out by a 'good neighbour' such as dog walking, small odd jobs and shopping. VODA matches Good Neighbours volunteers to local people in the community who could use this kind of support.

How it works

We enable trained volunteers to carry out small, pracitcal 'good neighbourly' jobs for those in need. Beneficiaries can self-refer or be referred by family members, friends or professionals. Watch our short video to see our Good Neighbours in action:
