Good Turn Scheme
Seiriol Good Turn Scheme
The Seiriol Good Turn Scheme (SGTS) has been set up by the Seiriol Alliance to give help to local people living in Seiriol Ward, Anglesey. The services are provided by volunteers. The SGTS offers help to any person living in the Seiriol area who, due to illness, incapacity, or some other need, could do with a hand performing everyday tasks. The purpose of the SGTS is to meet the needs of the community by providing a range of services for persons residing within the Seiriol area who may be in need of such services. The SGTS is happy to consider providing help to any person of any age, families, or groups of individuals dependant on their needs and the availability of volunteers. The services provided by the SGTS are based on the principle of members of the Seiriol communities doing “good turns” to help individuals or groups with identified needs. These good turns will include the following:
Benllech & Discrict Good Turn Scheme
Benllech and District Good Turn Scheme volunteers help local people in Benllech, Moelfre, Marianglas, Brynteg, Llanbedergoch, Red Wharf Bay and Pentraeth, who, due to illness or incapacity, could do with a hand performing everyday tasks. Our volunteers, who kindly give up some of their spare time, are happy to help, even if you just want a friendly face to fill in a form with you.
Bryngwran Good Turn Scheme was created by dedicated volunteers Eirian Huws & Neville Evans. Since its creation the GTS have recruited 23 volunteers in Bryngwran and Engedi and they have done over 170 Good Turns since Covid started - supporting over 40 people.
We are trying to encourage people to bring the 5 ways of wellbeing into their lives by connecting with others, being attentive, learning something new, being active and giving in different ways. The club provides the opportunities for everyone to achieve each and every one.
