Neighbours by chance - Friends by choice
Established in May 2013 Wythenshawe Good Neighbours (WGN) is a funded, volunteer led initiative concerned with reducing the impact of isolation and loneliness amongst our elderly Wythenshawe community.
Time Banking recognises that everyone has a skill to
share and that your community is full of residents with
an amazing mix of skills and knowledge that you may
not be aware of. It’s free to join and all you have to do
is share a skill that you have and spend a bit of time
helping someone else.
