Team Reading: Coronavirus Response Volunteers

Support volunteers needed for Reading Voluntary Action (RVA)

We are asking people to sign-up now to join a list of Response Volunteers who can be called upon to support the activities of local organisations in their response to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak as required.

It is difficult to predict what help might be required but it may involve supporting with:

  • Delivering food supplies
  • picking up prescriptions
  • telephoning isolated vulnerable people to check on their wellbeing.

Please complete the form found HERE if you feel you might be able to help.

You details will be added to a telephone/ email list and we will contact responders to ask them if they are able to help with certain tasks should the need arise.
