Sevenoaks Good Neighbour Volunteer
Published: 17 March 2020
Be a good neighbour – your community needs you
Over the coming days, weeks and months, it is likely that some of our Sevenoaks community will be required to self-isolate. Lets us help each other, as best we can, to get through this period of anxiety, uncertainty and potential loneliness.
Please think about the needs of your neighbours, especially (but not exclusively) the elderly and vulnerable. Give them a call or knock on their door to check they’re ok. Make sure they have food and other essential items, check whether they need help with shopping and make sure they have your phone number.
We thought it would be nice to follow the initiative started in Cornwall to spread kindness and offer to help those who may not like to ask for it. At the back of this leaflet, you will find two cut-outs that may be useful to offer help to a neighbour who you may be concerned about.
We are fortunate enough to have a local volunteer group that has set up a Facebook group to help those that have decided to self-isolate ‘Care for our Community-Sevenoaks’. Sevenoaks Residents Associations are also doing what they can to help.
