Have you made a New Years Resolution yet? Why not make it to help someone in the local community by taking part in the Darlington Partnership's new scheme 'Good Friends'. The aim is to keep a watchful eye on older and vulnerable neighbours, provide support and friendship and assistance.

The Darlington Partnership is setting up a network of Good Friends across Darlington, these people will keep a watchful eye on their older and vulnerable neighbours, providing support and friendship and assisting them with a range of issues which if left unaddressed could compromise their ability to live safely and well independently. They would make brief contact to check up on vulnerable people who live nearby but would escalate the contact during known difficult times e.g. cold weather or when alerted to a specific problem.

This is a great scheme which, at this time of dwindling public resources, could make a huge difference to people’s lives.
