CORONAVIRUS - West Sussex County Council Volunteer Hub
West Sussex County Council have issued the following message about the development of Community Volunteer Hubs:
Working with the District & Borough Councils, yourselves and the voluntary and community sector we are creating a volunteer Hub that amongst other things will capture staff that are freed up due to normal duties being suspended and offers of volunteering that can be deployed to support the vulnerable where gaps and demand exist.
With offers of volunteering over and above the swell of offers to check on neighbours and do their shopping etc, we are particularly keen to capture peoples skills so we can use them most effectively.
To ensure that we don’t rely on individual email addresses to coordinate this activity we have created the two below for you and others to feed into. So please let us know what’s happening locally from your perspective and thank you in advance.
Community – For offers around support, advice, guidance and capacity issues, use Communities@westsussex.gov.uk
Volunteering - For offers of volunteering to support services and the vulnerable use Volunteering@westsussex.gov.uk
