Voluntary Sector leaders and partners have agreed a set of actions to support local organisations and communities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Community Action Norfolk, Norfolk Community Foundation, Voluntary Norfolk and Momentum are working with Norfolk County Council, the district councils, health providers and other VCSE organisations to deliver a coordinated response which includes centralised points to request help, to register volunteers and to support community groups.
People needing support
If you are a member of the public needing assistance during Covid 19, please call Norfolk County Council’s Customer Contact Centre: 0344 800 8020 or visit the Community Support for People at Home page of their website. Please note Voluntary Norfolk is unable to respond to individual requests for help.
If you wish to volunteer
With the worst of the Covid crisis hopefully now over and lockdown restrictions easing, we are once again focusing on recruiting volunteers to support the vital work of voluntary organisations across Norfolk.
We are asking all prospective volunteers to search for volunteering opportunities and register their availability via our Simply Connect Volunteer Portal, which has details of almost 200 different volunteering roles. Please visit our Volunteering page for more details of how to search and register for volunteer roles.
