The National Careline have launched our CHECK YOUR NEIGHBOUR campaign

check on your neighbour campaign  


I am trying to raise awareness of our 'Check on your neighbour' campaign. I feel that if by doing this, we prevent just one more person dying cold and alone in their own house, we will have done our job. It doesn't take much to just pop round to check that someone is ok, whether they are short of anything etc.., and, in these harder times with fewer people in social services, it is our social responsibility to ensure the elderly and infirm are safe and warm.

Please take a look and see what you can do.



When the weather is bad, the elderly and those needing care are especially vulnerable. This situation is compounded with the current cut-backs in services, resulting in fewer people available to check on those who are at risk to ensure that they are safe and well.



This is why we at The National Careline have launched our CHECK YOUR NEIGHBOUR campaign.



This is where we can all play a part and become a good neighbour to the elderly people in our communities because it is no use leaving it all to the Social Services Departments ‑ they will be flat out taking care of their own caseloads anyway.



When you are out and about, it is no trouble to pick up some extra essential supplies such as bread and milk and take them to your elderly neighbours or those needing assistance. This applies to those living in towns as much as those in country areas as, even if access is reasonable, all other resources could already be fully committed.





It doesn't take much time to be a good neighbour - just to check someone is safe, warm and well.



Knock on the door and ask if they are ok, are they warm and well? Have they got essential supplies like bread and milk?



Or pick up the phone, call them and ask if they are ok, do they need any shopping done ‑ a few items collected when you go to the shops yourself.



This isn't to be a nosy neighbour, remember that in wintry conditions, cold can kill and your actions could save someone's life.



So support the campaign, click on this link and display the poster wherever you can
