Number of volunteers engaged within the community (currently the village care schemes)

Our goal

This measure relates to the number of volunteers engaged in the Good Neighbour and Village Care Schemes while a separate measure considers those who receive support through the schemes.

There has been a very minor increase in the number of volunteers involved in Good Neighbour Schemes between April and June 2019. The number of Good Neighbour Schemes established and operating is not likely to increase in the immediate future as most communities have a scheme. The focus for the future is maintaining support to existing schemes and to encourage them to take on a greater diversity of tasks, linking to social prescribing and other networks.




Bigger values are best
