The Council and Bexley Voluntary Service Council are working together to support Bexley residents who are able to give their time to support vulnerable people during the Covid-19 pandemic.
If you are a local resident who would like to help, please take a look at Bexley’s Volunteer Hub - BVSC’s volunteering scheme - which will match you with local charities, community groups and local people who need help.
Register at the Volunteer Hub at https://bvsc.co.uk/covid-19
No matter what skills you have to offer, where you’re based in Bexley or how much – or little – time you have to spare, if you've volunteered before, or even if you have self-isolated, there are charities and community groups who will welcome your help.
“The pandemic is creating extra challenges for many vulnerable people, so I urge anyone who has the time and is able to help to share your details with the Volunteer Hub,” said Council Leader Councillor Teresa O’Neill OBE.
“We are very pleased to be working with BVSC on this scheme, because they are a well-established organisation working closely with Bexley’s fantastic voluntary community groups. They can direct you to the people and places that need your help most. ”
BVSC will also do it best to help local charities and community groups who need extra volunteers. Full details are available on the link above.
