Coronavirus - Talk Community support

During the early days of the coronavirus pandemic Talk Community set up a response team to identify and provide support to the most vulnerable residents in our community who were self-isolating or shielding.

There was a fantastic response to our call for volunteers and around 1,300 volunteers formed a support network co-ordinated by re-deployed council staff, who acted as link workers, connecting requests and volunteers and ensuring each call was completed safely. 

Community networks, parish councils and local businesses continue to deliver support and services within their local area. As we all adapt to living with Covid-19 we have now partnered with hvoss, our local voluntary sector support service, to lead on the Talk Community volunteer response now and in the future.
