Bicester Good Neighbour Scheme (ongoing) 17 Mar 2016

The grant will help fund our scheme coordinator. Clients and volunteers need a reliable, experienced, and empathetic person to bring them together. As well as finding a suitable volunteer for each client, our coordinator risk assesses the client's environment; recruits volunteers; ensures that all are DBS checked; makes the introductions and supports all clients and volunteers. Experience has taught us that without a competent, dedicated coordinator the scheme will not flourish. We expect to lose our free office-space when Bicester Health & Wellbeing Centre closes this year and have included costs to cover an alternative.
