Isolation Help Bexley started as a result of Covid 19 and has grown through the pandemic. We saw that there was a need to support neighbour to neighbour and this premise is what drives us forward beyond the emergency response. We know that there are still many people who need support with food shopping, prescription collections, a newspaper or a friendly chat. We aim to help reduce the isolation of vulnerable and elderly residents through the Borough with 'good neighbour' Volunteers.

We need volunteers who will be able to offer their time for ad-hoc or regular support for residents; A good neighbour that is happy to pop to the shops for a few groceries, a newspaper a prescription or who can just be there for a chat. 

Isolation Help Bexley are always on the look out for kind hearted people to join us as volunteers.
