Volunteering and community response
Local communities continue to provide support and reassurance to individuals and organisations across the district affected by Covid-19. Below you will find useful links to advice and support for those who want to help and for the organisations that are contributing to the effort. This page will be updated as we receive new information.
Even if you are not directly involved in helping people suffering the effects of the coronavirus, your organisation should be planning how best to keep your employees, volunteers, supporters and beneficiaries informed and protected. NCVO have developed guidance for voluntary organisations that can be found here. Information on funding available to help you through the current crisis can be found on the right hand side of this page If you require help with your contingency planning, you can contact a member of the Community Development or Volunteering Team at Community First by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
