North Walsham Good Neighbour Scheme

Our volunteer-run scheme offers short term practical support to people in North Walsham.

All our volunteers are vetted and live locally. They are managed by a local committee, supported by Community Action Norfolk.
Whatever you need we will try to offer help or find a solution. The service, run by volunteers, is free – apart from travel expenses for lifts and the costs of any materials needed for a job.

Do you need some kind of practical help at home?

Maybe a lift somewhere, or someone to talk to?
The Good Neighbour Scheme offers support to people in North Walsham with one-off jobs like:
• mowing the lawn
• changing a light bulb
• retuning the TV
• taking you to an appointment or shopping
• collecting library books
• filling in forms or writing letters
• helping you tidy up
• walking your dog
• just listening and having a chat
• giving information about local services

If you would like to find out more about helping others in your local community, call us on 01692 558321 or send an email to
