Redbridge CVS is working with Redbridge Council for Voluntary Service (RCVS) and wanted to let you know about support available from Volunteer Centre Redbridge who have a large number of volunteers registered with them to help out during the pandemic in the following ways:

  • Practical help for vulnerable people e.g. shopping, delivery, dog walking
  • Checking in via phone with people who are socially isolated at home
  • Adding capacity to key services (e.g. care homes) in case of staff shortages
  • Lending professional skills e.g. IT skills, medical skills

If you have members who need this support, please contact Alice from Volunteer Centre Redbridge at: aliceb@redbridgecvs.net   

Additionally RCVS are looking to get a better understanding of what services are available and what volunteering needs are. They would be grateful if you can please complete this short survey to explain changes you are making to your services and how you feel your service users are being affected:
