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

Our goal is

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. In December 2015, there were 826 volunteers and numbers have been steadily increasing since the schemes began.

Most tasks that volunteers were involved in related to transport such as helping people get to hospital appointments. The number of volunteers has fallen slightly (by 16) between April 2017 and June 2017 as people have moved away or retired.

Bigger values are best
