DGN Aims

DGN is a voluntary organisation, aiming to provide help to local residents in need. Good Neighbour schemes are volunteer groups set up and run by local residents to provide a 'safety net' for their village or town, responding to calls from any fellow residents in need of a bit of extra help.

The aim of the scheme is to provide residents of Dunstable short term help, such as transport, domestic support and household assistance, through local volunteers and to encourage sustainability, self-help and friendship within the local community.

Do you need help? Do you know of a resident who may need help?

Our volunteers want to be there for Dunstable residents who have no family or friend nearby who might need occasional help, such as a lift to the doctor's shopping, collecting prescriptions, or practical help such as changing a light bulb or battery, helping to fill in forms or providing a hand of friendship by popping round for a chat and a cup of tea.

More Help Wanted

DGN is seeking more volunteers who are interested in helping their neighbours - you can give as much, or as little, time as you can spare! Please contact them if you would like more information on volunteering.
