In response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 situation, we are standing up the Clovenfords Resilient group to provide support and help to those in our community that may need it.
To formally register as a volunteer under the Resilient Community banner (as we’re required to do by SBC), please provide your name, address, preferred phone number, email address, and what help you can offer eg picking up shopping, collecting medication, posting mail, dog walking, a friendly phone call to those socially distanced.
Only send your personal details to the email address; please do NOT post any personal data on public Facebook pages.
Please also confirm that you give permission to record your personal details on our volunteer register. This will ensure that any volunteering you do under the direction of the resilient community group will be covered by SBC liability insurance, etc. The data held on our register will only be accessed by the resilient community group coordinators and will not be shared with any other party or organisation (other than SBC as mandated). Only share data that you are happy to be held.
We have already has a very good response from existing volunteers and are always happy to take more. So don’t be disheartened if you don’t get a response for a few days and if you’re services aren’t immediately required. With the expectation that self-isolation for vulnerable groups will last for quite some time, we expect that volunteers will be required for a sustained period and there will be peaks and troughs as volunteers’ availability also changes.
