Bexley Voluntary Services Council (BVSC) have launched a new volunteering scheme to respond to the Coronavirus crisis and maximise support for those in need.
The scheme will match those who volunteer to help with local charities and community groups looking for support. No matter what kinds of skills you have to offer, if you've volunteered before, or even if you're isolated yourself, there will be charities and community groups who need your help.
If you want to help your neighbours, help our community and help keep people safe you can sign up at bvsc.co.uk/covid-19
Please do check on your neighbours to see that they are alright. Not everyone will be online or on social media, so it's important to reach out to those close by.
Commenting James said:
"I have been struck by the number of people who have contacted me to offer help and support. It underlines the strength of our community here in Bexley and even at challenging times like these that people are looking out for others.
"The new BVSC hub provides a really important way to ensure offers of support can be harnessed and used to best effect. It is so important we think of others and work together to get through this."
