Please find enclosed press release from the Emergency Planning Officer (EPO) on behalf of the Local Resilience Forum (LRF).
We are aware that there are many groups and individuals that are volunteering to help neighbours and vulnerable people in their communities during the Coronavirus outbreak.
The attached information explains how you can help and register your group, or as an individual to support this coordinated effort through this Resilience Cell.
Any group / individual will be asked to register, the LRF will then know you are available to provide help, the second part will be for those that need help to register.
The cell will also provide help and guidance to the volunteers, and be able to call upon the appropriate agencies where needed.
Neighbourhood Watch members can register through another group, (if their scheme is not registered with the LRF cell) i.e. local Parish/Community Council or another existing group.
