around our personal responsibilities, availabilities, emergencies and even illness too.

HOW WE ENSURE YOUR SAFETY
Always be sure that anyone who you don't know, but who acts as if they are a Snape Good Neighbour, carries a valid photo-ID (an example of which can be viewed below) with the logo shown above. Our genuine Volunteers are, of course, all DBS-checked, and will NEVER object to you checking their identity via the phone number above. The DBS is the Government's Disclosure and Barring Service, which "enables organisations … to make safer recruitment decisions … especially involving children or vulnerable adults".
«MEET UP MONDAYS»
We meet at The Golden Key every Monday morning (usually even Bank Holidays) — read more here.
HOW WE'RE SUPPORTED IN TURN WITHIN SUFFOLK
