What is a Neighbourhood Network?
The Neighbourhood Network is a new way for you to volunteer or take part in activities in your local area, to help out in your local community or to carry out small but vital tasks for other people in your area such as:
- Some company – talking on the telephone or having a visit
- Practical help in the house
- Transport to GP or hospital visits
- Accessing a local group or club
- Walking a dog
- Pursuing a hobby
- Writing a letter
- Learning how to use a computer
- Help in winter or extreme weather conditions
- Joining or setting up a neighbourhood watch
- Letting other people in your area about what’s going on in the community
- Helping out at clubs or groups
Who are we?
The Neighbourhood Network is part of the Community Voluntary Services Tendring Lottery funded HILL project – Healthier Independent Longer Lives, which uses voluntary effort from local people to provide help for local people who need assistance with transport, household tasks, letter writing, companionship, practical support following illness and more.
Where is this project taking place?
There are currently two neighbourhood networks – one in the Pier Ward of Clacton and one in Jaywick.
How does it work?
If you feel you need a bit of help now and again (or even for a short time) to help to maintain your independence the Neighbourhood Network scheme may be able to help you. Contact us on 01255 425692 or email us at
