About Us

The Eynsham Good Neighbour Network is run entirely by volunteers and exists to support anyone in need in the village.

Prior to COVID-19 volunteers were helping people with a variety of tasks including local shopping, minor household repairs, reading aloud or even catching up over a cup of tea.

During this period of ‘social distancing’ we are not able to facilitate any face to face visits; however we continue to be able to help those in need with local shopping and collecting prescriptions, whilst following government guidelines. We can also keep in touch by telephone if you are feeling isolated.

Call the Network on 07443 564 516 to leave a message at any time, or you can speak to one of the coordinators between 09:00 and 18:00 from Monday to Saturday.

The Network is now working in partnership with the Eynsham Heroes Community Network, who have also set up a fundraising page.

The EGNN would like to say a huge Thank You for the incredibly positive and selfless response from our volunteers and drivers and from the wider Eynsham community during this crisis.

Eynsham Car Scheme

After a lockdown break, we are taking clients to health care appointments again. And now that the NHS is starting to catch up with normal work, our trips are increasing.But with regular drivers shielding we need more volunteers.

Would you like to help?

No regular commtment - just read the email list of journeys needed each time it comes out. If you can offer one or two drives a month it would mean we don't have to turn down people who need our help. To learn more telephone 07469 764174

Eynsham Car Scheme has provided transport for elderly or infirm parishioners to hospitals and clinics for over 45 years - read the background.

Do you need our help?

You can call and leave a message at any time. Our volunteer co-ordinators will answer your call when they can during working hours on weekdays, but messages are checked regularly and we will get back to you at the earliest opportunity.Do ring as soon as you can - that way you can be more sure we can find a driver for you.
