Quorn is planning to set up a Good Neighbours Scheme. Good Neighbours Schemes are run by local volunteers who provide day to day support for other residents who may need help on an occasional or regular basis. For older people this support may enable them to live independently in their own homes and communities for longer and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness. They help people to remain connected within their communities and to live enriched lives.

Please contact us for further information about this scheme.
