Our scheme has now been running for about 18 months with very positive results. We are lucky to live in a supportive village, but despite this people are still vulnerable and this scheme has given reassurance and support to those who need it …I would encourage all communities to start a Good Neighbourhood Scheme so we can ensure people can remain in the environment they would wish, feeling safe and supported.Stogumber Good Neighbours Scheme
