Link Good Neighbour Volunteers

Link is a team of local volunteers who help the community by offering care and transport to people in need. LINK supports and complements Local Community Health and Social Services ,but is not intended to replace them. It is organised by a committee of local people who oversee the general running of the scheme and try and "link" up someone's need with a volunteer who can help.

The Winterslow branch of LINK has always been self supporting

This is achieved by holding events, such as running a water station at the Clarendon Marathon, receiving donations from grateful recipients and our collection boxes. Although no charge is made for services given, Link is always grateful for a donation from those we help, particularly for transport, as this is very expensive these days.

Help that can be provided

Link can provide transport to a hospital or clinic, help to write a letter or fill in a difficult form. Maybe provide a meal or make a visit if someone is lonely or housebound. We could exercise or feed pets,fetch library books, do shopping or collect prescriptions. If you look after elderly or disabled relatives we could give you a break. We may even be able to carry out small jobs around the house Why not join our group of "good neighbour" volunteers and provide transport to hospitals etc?

Link volunteers receive a mileage allowance, out of pocket expenses and provide insurance cover for volunteers giving transport services.
