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
care / dog walking
and signposting to support services.
