Age UK Darlington (Good Friends)

Good Friends works alongside Darlington’s Neighbourhood Watch to bridge the gap between voluntary social services such as Age UK Darlington’s Befriending and a just ‘Watching’ approach.  A network of Good Friends is being established across Darlington to keep a watchful eye on older, isolated and/or vulnerable neighbours; they will provide support, friendship and assist them with a range of issues which if left unaddressed could compromise their ability to live safely and independently.  

The project works by partnering you with someone in your area who needs a little extra help once in a while. This could include:

  • Helping with their wheelie bin once a week.
  • Tidying up their garden when needed.
  • Assisting with using their computer to shop online.
  • Even just checking up on them now and then.

As Good Friends is running in partnership with Neighbourhood Watch, you will also be registered as a member and receive updates on what’s going on in your area.
