Care schemes are 'good neighbour' groups set up and run by local residents to provide a 'safety net' for their village or ward area, responding to calls from any fellow resident in need of a bit of extra help.  All volunteers are fully insured and DBS (previously CRB) checked. Most help is free, unless expenses such as petrol or parking have been incurred, but donations are always welcome. 

Volunteers do not take on tasks best suited to trained professionals or the emergency services but can help out with the occasional things that can make all the difference, such as lifts to the shops or doctors; collecting shopping; small household jobs such as changing a light-bulb or setting up a DVD recorder; walking the dog; even popping round for a chat over a cup of tea - or anything else that one neighbour might do for another.
