Helping out in your local community

Your NHS needs you! Join our team today.
 

NHS Volunteer Responders has been set up to support the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak. To do this we need an 'army' of volunteers who can support the 1.5m people in England who are at most risk from the virus to stay well. Our doctors, nurses and other professionals will be able to refer people in to NHS Volunteer Responders and be confident that they have been matched with a reliable, named volunteer.

Please join "community helps" https://www.facebook.com/groups/688829558524887/ on FB - set up by one of our committee members, a good forum to seek support from volunteers or to volunteer support (for those of you that are social distancing but not self-isolating)
