Over the past few months neighbours across the Bay have been looking after each other – sharing shopping, collecting prescriptions or just calling each other on the phone. Together we have survived one of the greatest challenges our community has seen. Now we are looking to the future and asking people to be part of making the ‘new normal’ in Torbay better and even more beautiful than before.
We are inviting you to be one of our Good Neighbours and pull together the people in your street (or section of street) to make a good recovery. We are simply asking people to give as much time as they have to coordinate mutual help amongst their neighbours. Linking people safely together to take us through the next stage of the Coronavirus and beyond. We will provide Good Neighbours with information and advice, and a Community Builder to help them make the most of the opportunities on their street. Your Community Builder will have been working in your neighbourhood for at least a year before COVID arrived. They have lots of local knowledge and a direct link into all of the help being provided through the Coronavirus Helpline. They are a great ‘go to’ person.
To make it safer for you we ask you to provide us with one referee. Please fill in this form and we will help you get started. Thank you.
