Staying connected with your neighbours
If you have a neighbour or know someone who is alone or isolated, especially those in the vulnerable and at risk categories, or just doing it tough, download and fill out the Good Neighbour Calling Card and drop it under their door to let them know you’re around if they need any help.
What help you can offer is up to you. It could be picking up some groceries or supplies, walking their dog, posting mail, providing translating support or just having a friendly chat over the phone.
The card also includes important tips to keep you safe if you are receiving assistance. Only accept help from someone you know and trust, never let people inside your home if you do not know them.
