The Feelgood Factory works with local volunteers to provide practical services to help older people and those who need extra assistance with everyday living. At the moment we provide two main services.
The Shopping Service
The Feelgood Factory Shopping Service will undertake food shopping for those who find it difficult to get out or carry heavy bags. We will ring you during the week to take your list and will then order the goods required. We are not able to shop at different stores for this service but will source your goods from one of the main supermarkets. On an agreed day, one of our volunteers will deliver the shopping and put it away if needed. There is an administration charge of £5 per shop for this service.
As a response to demand from customers of our shopping service, the Feelgood Factory is now able to offer a Shopping Extra service to find, purchase and deliver a range of goods in addition to food. For a small administration charge, we will undertake to shop for a range of goods including:
- Small household goods
- Electrical goods etc.
Details of the Shopping Extra Service can be found on the leaflet.
Mow and Grow
The Mow and Grow service will help you keep your garden tidy on a regular or occasional basis. The service will undertake most basic gardening tasks including mowing and strimming.
The Befriending Project helps people who are on their own and would benefit from someone visiting their homes for a chat once or twice a week. Our befrienders are all volunteers and are carefully selected and trained.
For details about any of these services please contact the Feelgood Factory on 0151 291 8010.
