KITE – Our Good Neighbour Scheme

We support the community of St Michaels with a group of co-ordinators and volunteers to help people with a specific need. The service is free but if expenses are incurred a donation will be requested. The scheme is not intended to replace carers and volunteers are not able to provide personal care.

How can KITE help you?

Essentially, by doing things a good neighbour does but a little more formally, aiming to reach everyone. The scheme might help by:

  • Lifts into Tenbury e.g. shopping, doctor etc.
  • Collecting prescriptions and library books
  • Shopping and running errands
  • Helping with form filling and letters
  • Walking or feeding pets
  • Practical tasks in the home such as changing a light bulb
  • Making regular phone calls or visits to keep in touch

Who can benefit from this scheme?

Our volunteers are happy to visit anyone who needs help and lives in the parish of St Michaels. You may be:

  • elderly
  • vulnerable
  • isolated
  • a single parent
  • a family
  • a carer

Who are the volunteers?

Volunteers are local people who are prepared to give up their time to help people in their community. You may already know them. All volunteers have been checked and carry identity cards to help you feel more confident about your safety.

How do you arrange for a volunteer to visit you?

Phone 07393 492467 and speak to the coordinator or leave a message. We will arrange for a volunteer to contact you.
