Call for volunteers – local and national

30 Mar 2020 16:13:02


If you have family and friends who want to do something to help their community during this period of social distancing, there are a number of opportunities to get involved.

Rotherham Council has established the Rotherham Community Hub with Voluntary Action Rotherham and the Rotherham Together Partnership to coordinate the Rotherham Heroes Volunteer Programme.

They are calling for individuals, organisations, clubs and businesses who want to volunteer. It is a great opportunity for people to work together as a community to make sure everyone is getting the support they need during the Covid-19 outbreak.

They are keen to hear from businesses and community groups and volunteers who can offer help with:

  • shopping for essentials
  • tackling loneliness
  • prescription collection
  • pet care / dog walking
  • advice and signposting to support services.
