Services

The Royal Voluntary Service helps older people to live independently in their own homes.

The Good Neighbours scheme offers people the following kinds of informal help such as:

  • befriending
  • transport to medical appointments or to visit friends and family
  • shopping
  • simple DIY
  • form filling and letter writing
  • pet care
  • on ward befriending

The Good Neighbours scheme does not undertake tasks that should be provided by statutory organisations such as cleaning or personal care. Clients must register with the Royal Voluntary Service before using any of the services.

The Royal Voluntary Service also runs cafes, shops and trolley services in Woodend Hospital, Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, Woolmanhill Hospital, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Royal Cornhill Hospital.

Tasks are undertaken by volunteers who are checked under the PVG scheme through Disclosure Scotland (except cafe, shop and trolley services). Volunteers are accepted from 16 years old upwards, with the exception of volunteering in the cafe which can be undertaken at 14 years old.
