Ross-on-Wye Community Development Trust achieved charitable status in 2019 and at the heart of our operations is the Ross Good Neighbours scheme which aims to help people across the town in many different ways.

Our team of volunteers provide a range of services for people who are vulnerable and need support. We can provide a home shopping service, befriending, light DIY or gardening tasks as well as a dedicated Helpline (01989 313002). We cannot help with personal care however.

If you need help, or if would like to find out more about our Neighbourhood Buddy scheme, please email help@rosscdt.org.uk or call our Helpline on 01989 313002

Making Connections with the Local Voluntary Sector

We offer support to local volunteer organisations and charities, enabling them to access useful resources, DBS checks for volunteers and employees, publicity, as well as networking, connecting them with each other and connecting with local volunteers.
