VODA are looking to recruit more Good Neighbours Volunteer Buddies to support North Tyneside residents who have been shielding. The buddy roles have been designed to support people who may be feeling anxious about taking their first steps back into the world after many months shielding at home, often on their own.
- Garden Gate Buddy for socially distanced garden / doorstep friendly chats
- Walking Buddy to help people to enjoy the outdoors on a socially distanced walk
- Shopping Buddy to support people with their first shopping trips after shielding
This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local people.`
