Coronavirus

Information and support for the third sector and community groups on the Coronavirus / Covid-19 outbreak

We’ve produced some basic guidelines and information for local community/good neighbour schemes which are being established across the borough in the light of the coronavirus outbreak.  

Volunteers – we are actively encouraging people who wish to volunteer, together with local organisations who need new volunteers to register on the Volunteering Wales database https://merthyrtydfil.volunteering-wales.net/vk/volunteers/index.htm

This will hopefully enable us to match volunteers with organisations as seamlessly as possible.  Alternatively, contact Frances Barry on frances.barry@vamt.net or ring 01685 353901

Services you can provide – we’re actively publicising and creating an internal database of what services can be provided in communities, from dog walking, shopping, running errands to telephone befriending schemes to minimise isolation.  If there is something you’d like us to promote and to add to our database, please contact hilary.edwards@vamt.net 01685 353917.

VAMT’s Volunteer Centre also now has an Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/volunteermerthyr/ with which we hope to attract younger people who wish to volunteer.
