Ross Good Neighbours
Ross Good Neighbours offers practical help to households in Ross and surrounding areas, particularly for those who are self-isolating or are unable to get out. Our community helpline - 01989 313002 - is available every Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm or you can leave a message 24/7 and a friendly volunteer will call you back as soon as they can.
Our network of Neighbourhood Buddies are able to assist with services such as:
- Shopping: Delivering groceries and other essentials to your front door twice a week.
- Ross Recycling Centre: If you are unable to get online or use the internet, the volunteer team can help to book appointments for you and get a printed pass for the tip.
- Ordering library books and garden waste green bags: For those who cannot access the internet, our volunteers can assist you with ordering both.
- Pets: If you are unable to look after pets as usual, for example, taking your dog on short walks or to the vet, our volunteers will be able to assist.
- Community oximeter library: At the request of local GPs, 20 oximeters have been purchased and are available on loan from 8 locations in the town and surrounding parishes, so that doctors can have information about oxygen levels during telephone consultations.
Our network of volunteers, or Neighbourhood Buddies, are able to respond to requests for help or refer specialised requests to our voluntary sector and statutory partners. Just call the helpline on 01989 313002 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you require assistance or if you have any questions.
