Croydon Council are working with Croydon Voluntary Action (CVA) to coordinate volunteers across the borough. These volunteers will be supporting Croydon Council’s work to deliver food and essential goods to those in Croydon who cannot leave their homes and are vulnerable.
Croydon Council and the CVA are coordinating with a number of food hubs across the borough, ensuring those most at risk are supported. If you know someone who needs support, you can contact the CVA on 020 8253 7076 or 07540 720102; Monday to Friday 10 - 4pm; or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The CVA is coordinating the community sector effort to maintain social connections across the borough by:
- Compiling a directory of services and activities still running - so please email email@example.com with brief details of whatever support your group is managing to provide.
- Running a telephone helpline for vulnerable people who need support to contact them on - 0208 253 7076
- Signing up volunteers here - please complete and submit the form to their Volunteer Centre team who will contact you between 10am and 4pm from Monday to Friday
- Sending out weekly newsletters updating organisations on 'live' services in the borough and funding opportunities linked to the outbreak – sign up to receive it at https://cvalive.org.uk/join-us/
Please do sign up to support this work. There is particularly high demand for people who are already DBS-checked, although this is not a requirement.
