Ilkley Good Neighbours

Ilkley & District Good Neighbours

Ilkley & District Good Neighbours was first set up in the 1970s and comprises of a team of local volunteers managed from the Ilkley office of Community Action Bradford and District.  They help residents in the area by offering practical assistance where needed.  Good Neighbours is a small charity which operates a range of schemes, constantly striving to develop the service to improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of the community.

“We believe in the power of community action to make a difference in people’s daily lives. For each of our schemes we raise a team of volunteers who are willing to help others in their community in a number of ways.  Our Home & Garden Assist venture is the arm of our organisation which deals with helping people out around the house. It is composed of a band of DIYers and gardeners who visit homes in Ilkley and district to tidy gardens, change light-bulbs and much more. “
