Everybody Needs Good Neighbours!


As stricter distancing measures are introduced in order to help slow the spread of this awful virus, it is likely that some of our Petersfield community will start to feel very isolated indeed.  Let us help each other as best we can to get through this period of anxiety, uncertainty and potential loneliness.

Please think about the needs of your neighbours, especially (but not exclusively) the elderly and vulnerable.  Give them a call to see if they are okay, make sure they have food and other essential items.


There are four main volunteers the NHS are looking to seek:

Community Response volunteer
This role involves collecting shopping, medication or other essential supplies for someone who is self-isolating, and delivering these supplies to their home.

Patient Transport volunteer
This role supports the NHS by providing transport to patients who are medically fit for discharge, and ensuring they are settled safely back in to their home.

NHS Transport volunteer
This role involves transporting equipment, supplies and/or medication between NHS services and sites.
The role may also involve assisting pharmacies with medication delivery.

Check in and Chat volunteer
This role provides short-term telephone support to individuals who are at risk of loneliness as a result of self-isolation.
This can be done from your own home
