Good Neighbours COVID-19 Response

During the lock down Good Neighbours Coventry, a project we helped set up with Hope Coventry, is working in conjunction with Coventry Foodbank to provide much needed support to vulnerable and at risk older people.

Conversation to beat isolation

Good Neighbours Connect involves a volunteer being matched with an isolated older person to provide friendship and conversation over the telephone, or through letter writing. It's similar to the befriending service, but just over the phone!

Assistance with shopping and/or collecting medication

Good Neighbours Assist involves a volunteer collecting essential shopping on an older person's behalf, and picking up prescriptions and medication, and delivering everything to the door.

Emergency food for those most in need

Good Neighbours Food Parcels provides emergency food for self isolating, high risk older people in need. The parcels are a combination of essential food supplies from Coventry Foodbank and ready meals made by the Hope Centre at Mosaic Church.

Here at Together for Change, we want to provide as much support as we can to this key project, and we are currently raising money to buy supplies for the food parcels. As lockdown has unfolded, food donations at the foodbank have decreased considerably, and your financial contribution would mean we can help get more food to vulnerable older people who really need it.
