Coronavirus Volunteer Support

In the wake of this unforeseen crisis BPRCVS is responding to provide a support service to help the most vulnerable people in our local communities. Here at BPRCVS we work very hard to reduce social isolation in the communities we represent, but these mitigating and extenuating circumstances have meant that unfortunately for a significant group of people they are being asked to self-isolate in an effort to protect themselves and others from the viral outbreak. This period of self-isolation could potentially last for weeks and months. This decision will likely lead to saving lives, but it also poses a number of significant challenges for these isolated people to overcome. 

Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale CVS is appealing for volunteers to join our Coronavirus Response Team. At the moment we are seeking expressions of interest from volunteers before we mobilise the team as volunteers will be absolutely crucial to these efforts. Full training and support will be provided to anyone who volunteers for the Response Team and expenses will be reimbursed. We have a policy in effect which makes every effort to ensure that BPRCVS offices, buildings, staff and volunteers are as protected as possible in an attempt to reduce exposure to the virus.

If you're interested in volunteering to help out during this crisis your dedication, effort and time will be greatly appreciated by many members of your local community.

We're open to all enquiries from volunteers irrespective of your background. BPRCVS is looking for people who are caring and compassionate, good communicators, confident on the phone and committed to helping out during an unprecedented time in all our lives.
