The Royal Voluntary Service
The Royal Voluntary Service offers a Good Neighbours Scheme in East Fife, which helps to keep people leading independent lives by offering transport and a helping hand where it is needed. The volunteers offer practical support by taking care of the things the people they serve are less able to do for themselves, like shopping or getting to and from social activities, hospital or GP appointments etc.
Volunteers also provide social and emotional support, in person or on the phone, once or twice a week. Sometimes that also means organising, running, or attending local classes in anything from Tai Chi to IT.
It’s all about giving people the support they need to stay safe, well and connected to their communities.
Visit the RVS website or call 01592 269654, for more information and to find out what's available in your area.
