Would you like to become a Volunteer?
If you would like to help people in the community of Chinnor, and its surrounding villages, and are interested in joining our Good Neighbour Scheme Volunteers please contact us to find out more. We’d be delighted to hear from you.
We are very grateful to our volunteers for giving up their time to help us, and we do not expect them to be out of pocket as a result; for example, if you help in providing transport you can claim 40p per mile to cover expenses.
Our volunteers love what they do, and as one of them said “You meet some lovely people, and it’s great to be able to help them, but you’re not tied to specific days or times, you can do what you want and when it suits you, plus you’re not letting people down when you are not available because of holidays, etc”.
We are extremely fortunate to have such a lively and involved community in the Chinnor area. The Chinnor Good Neighbour Scheme is an integral part of this community spirit. Our volunteers are dedicated and committed to helping local people.
The Chinnor Good Neighbour Scheme is run and co-ordinated by volunteers. Scheme Administration support is at the Parish Council Office on Station Road in Chinnor.
