Reflecting our caring community, we have been approached by many people here in Inverclyde eager to offer their support at his time. So we are using our dedicated volunteering website, www.volunteerinverclyde.org.uk, where we have added 'COVID-19' as an event to capture those willing and able to help.
Organisations that have already registered to access our website can then contact potential volunteers directly themselves if they need any help during this period. Any volunteers they recruit from the contact list will become their responsibility, protected by their own best practices. Potential volunteers will then be reassured when signing up that their details will only be accessed by trusted organisations.
Inverclyde Life - with so many people in our community eager to offer support, our Inverclyde Life platform is also being used to help. We have now added "COVID-19" as a tag within the website at www.inverclydelife.com and would ask that you update your "About" section to include what your organisation or group can do to help at this time - such as food parcels, dog walking, daily phone calls to those self-isolating, etc - using the COVID-19 tag. Then anyone who searches Inverclyde Life using the keyword COVID-19 will be directed to all organisations offering support and help. Using the tag will further ensure that your organisation will be seen.
We shall be sharing this information on all our social media platforms and would ask that you please share. We want to ensure that our community knows where to turn to for help during this difficult time.
