Richmond upon Thames has an exceptional volunteering community and it is no surprise that community groups and residents across the borough are offering their support in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
This will allow organisations and groups to work together effectively to mobilise individuals who are able to help and match them to suitable volunteering tasks.
These may include:
- shopping for and/or delivery of food/supplies/prescriptions,
- walking dogs for those self-isolating
- talking to those at risk of loneliness
- Supporting with critical transport needs
- Helping with digital skills coaching
If you are an individual, or business with staff who are interested in helping, we would encourage you to sign up with Richmond upon Thames’ official volunteering database with Richmond CVS.
If you are such a group that formed in response, please contact Richmond CVS to make sure you have the right processes in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those residents who are most vulnerable during this time.
