Council/SVE Response to Covid-19 – Volunteers wanted

Stirling Council and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE) are asking volunteers and local community groups to register and be part of a co-ordinated response to the Covid-19 emergency. By volunteering you can make a big difference in your area and on a national level.
 
We are developing a recognised, formal Stirling area wide network to support those in need at a local level. By being part of a formal coordinated effort, our response will be stronger and safer for those vulnerable individuals and families needing support. 
 
Stirling Council and SVE are fully tied in to the national volunteering agencies and their campaigns.
 
The www.investinstirling.com/key-sectors/volunteering site will allow community groups and individuals to register their interest, by registering you are helping us to provide co-ordinated support across the Stirling area.
 
Please register
* As individuals who would be willing to become Befrienders, Volunteer drivers, Volunteers assisting with essential groceries and collecting prescriptions or to assist with food preparation for vulnerable people.
* As local community groups who can organise a local response and provide assistance in their area. Individual members of groups need not register just a primary contact.
* As third sector organisations who can support the collective effort or commit resources at a local level.

After registration, you will be contacted by a Local Co-ordination Team in your area. We will ensure that all volunteers’ health & wellbeing is protected by following all official guidelines related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

 
Thank you for your continued support.
