About Good Friends
Good Friends is an initiative which works alongside Darlington's Neighbourhood watch to bridge the gap between voluntary social services such as Age UK Darlington's Befriending Service. A network of Good Friends is being established across Darlington to keep a watchful eye on older, isolated and/or vulnerable neighbours; they will provide support, friendship and assist them with a range of issues which if left unaddressed could compromise their ability to live safely and independently.
A Good Friend will make brief contact to check up on neighbours who live nearby and assistance if necessary; they are also equipped to signpost concerns to other support services if needed.
