Welcome to
Dittons & Weston Green Neighbourcare

Who are we?

We are a group of volunteer drivers and telephone operators who provide help to our elderly and infirm citizens who would otherwise find it difficult to get out and about. Our service area covers Thames Ditton, Long Ditton and Weston Green in the Borough of Elmbridge, Surrey.

What do we do?
Typical everyday assignments include giving people lifts to the doctor's or to hospital, hairdressers and day centres.

How does it work?
A voluntary duty phone operator takes calls between 9.00am and 12.00pm each weekday morning. The operator makes a few phone calls to find a driver, then rings the caller back with the name of the driver. If the first driver cannot manage the request at that time the operator tries another driver on the list.

Come and join us!
You can do as much or as little as you are able. You say in advance any days and times you might be able to help - but you can still change your mind when you get an actual request! We cushion you against undue involvement with those needing help, because each phone operator randomly selects a different volunteer from the driver list.
