Eastleigh Good Neighbours

Eastleigh Good Neighbours is looking for a new committee member to take responsibility for marketing. The role would be to raise awareness of the group to both potential volunteers and potential service users, through events, press releases, leaflets and posters. The committee meets five times a year in the evening. Eastleigh Good Neighbours provides door to door transport and help with low key DIY and gardening to people in Eastleigh town who are unable to access public transport or undertake household tasks for themselves. The tasks are undertaken by local volunteers. The all-volunteer group also needs more coordinators to take a turn at picking up messages from clients and matching their requests with available volunteers. Records are computerised so computer skills are needed. The role is undertaken from home – picking up messages from a remotely located answerphone – and all out of pocket expenses are covered. The friendly group provides full training and support, with opportunities for get togethers and socialising.
