Will you be a good neighbour?
St Nicholas Hospice is launching a special and innovative project called Hospice Neighbours. The scheme is a volunteer led initiative that provides practical support to people (and their families) who are coming to the end of their lives. This can include picking up prescriptions, taking the dog for a walk, doing the shopping or simply providing companionship.
Families located all over the catchment area of West Suffolk will be able to benefit from the scheme which is currently being piloted in Haverhill and Stanton. Our teams have been trained and CRB checked and are ready and willing to give people a hand. As a community based scheme, the Hospice will be working in partnership with organisations to help raise awareness and to benefit from each other’s expertise.
If you would like any further information, either from a volunteering perspective or because you would like to know how to request help from a Hospice Neighbour, please contact Kay Newman, Hospice Neighbours Coordinator on 01284 719638 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
