At the beginning of lock down, RedShift Radio had to abruptly stop preparations for our long -awaited relaunch on 1st April as a Community Podcast Network (previously we were broadcasting 70+ hours of live online radio).
So, to keep us busy and make good use of our strong community network, we swung into action and set up a volunteer support network to help households that needed to isolate.
The first 40 volunteers came from our immediate network, family and friends within the first three weeks. We began working with Cheshire East’s People Helping People team who received the calls from the general public asking for help, mainly with shopping and prescription collection.
To date we have supported over 160 households in Nantwich and our volunteer network has topped the 60 mark.
We are here for our town of Nantwich, for anyone in our community that needs us. We can help with shopping, dog walking, basic gardening jobs, befriending, prescription collection, whatever people or organisations need help with in Nantwich – just ask!
To ask for Buddies help please call the Cheshire East People Helping People team on 0300 123 5034. They will assess your needs and filter you to the appropriate organisation, of which Nantwich Buddies is one.
ADCA provides welfare support to vulnerable and socially isolated adults and older people and their carers within Audlem and District, promoting social inclusion, community participation and independence.
We are based in the Audlem Public Hall Annexe.
We are always looking for more volunteers to join us in our work!

Through a dedicated team of volunteers we deliver community led activities and events designed to promote health, wellbeing and personal development.
We are always looking for people of all ages and abilities who are willing to spare their free time to help our work in the community.
We have been providing support to local residents who may need help, are self-isolating or live alone and whose family, friends or neighbours are unable to help. For those people needing support it is important that you get it from people you know or trust.
During the last 8 months of the Covid-19 outbreak our volunteers have been helping to cover the areas of Wrenbury and its surrounding parishes.
Our volunteers are all registered and checked and medical transport drivers DBS checked. We are working closely with Cheshire East Council and Cheshire Voluntary Services.
WE CAN HELP YOU WITH:
We want to support our local businesses and ensure their long term future within our community. We will be using local providers where we can.
