VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO PROVIDE VITAL COMMUNITY SUPPORT
The Helpful Bureau is stepping up its urgent appeal for more volunteers, to counter the impact of Covid-19 in Nottinghamshire.
Almost 750 vulnerable people have been supported by The Helpful Bureau since March 2020.
Services include transport to COVID vaccinations and other essential medical appointments, and telephone befriending to counter social isolation.
Now we need more volunteers to meet rise in demand for services due to the current lockdown restrictions.
Operations Manager Heather Bessant said: “There are so many people who need our help. Our volunteers have been brilliant during the pandemic, but with the new national restrictions, many vulnerable people will be very anxious and needing our support to access essential services.
“We’re appealing for more volunteers to help so we have a flexible team able to respond to changing demands, and to provide support when and where people need it.”
Volunteering is open to people from all walks of life, who want to make a difference.
