Looking Out For Neighbours

Alert message sent 12/12/2019 11:17:00

Information sent on behalf of Cumbria Neighbourhood Watch

'Looking Out For Neighbours’ is a new project run by ACTion with Communities in Cumbria.  It is about injecting community spirit and making our neighbourhoods friendlier places, particularly for those who may be vulnerable, lonely or unable to get about by themselves.
If you would like to get involved in the project please contact me. 

We are looking for friendly Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators and Members throughout Cumbria who would like to do a little bit extra for their community.  The role is voluntary and would involve speaking to those members of your community who might benefit from seeing a friendly face, finding out what sort of activities/events they might like (e.g. coffee morning with a visiting nurse for instance, a shopping trip etc) and helping to organise it.  The groups can be as small as 4 or 5 people and the activities can be small or large.  Regardless of size, neighbourly actions make a huge difference to people. 

We would also like to invite you to join a small group of Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators and Members who would be interested in helping to develop the project.  This is likely to involve a couple of meetings and email discussions in the new year.  Travel expenses can be paid for meetings which will be held centrally, depending on responses (possibly Penrith / Keswick area).  
If you want more information or are interested in getting involved, please contact me.  Find out a little bit more here.
Thank you,
Jemma, ACTion with Communities Project Officer. 
Please be aware that I work for ACT only 1 day a week so my replies may not be immediate.
