COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives

Last Updated: 1st June 2020

In light of current Government Guidance in relation to the Coronavirus WVSC have made changes to the way that we are working:

  • We are CLOSED to visitors but continuing to support our customers and partners in different ways and welcoming new referrals and requests.
  • Most staff are working from home and able to provide support on telephone, email etc.  They have full access to the same information that they would if they were working from our offices. Please contact us through the usual channels: emails will be picked up as usual, phones will either be answered or re-directed.  In the event that you are asked to leave a message please do so and we will respond to those as soon as we are able.
  • A small number of staff remain working from our offices at 16 Temple Street.  They are coordinating the work of our projects and supporting Citywide efforts to ensure that local people, particularly the most vulnerable, are able to access the wide range of support that is still available through organisations and a growing number of local  volunteers.
  • Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter & follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn for updates.

How you can help…

WVSC is focusing on providing a coordinated response to the situation regarding the Coronavirus, and in particular on linking people who want to volunteer with existing organisations that require volunteers in the light of developing needs.

We have had a fantastic response to our call out for volunteers and we now need to hear from more organisations who are in need of volunteers and other support.

What support does your org need?
We appreciate that your time is limited and forms are inconvenient, however if you complete this short form it will enable us to support your organisation more efficiently.

Register as a volunteer with our Volunteer Centre:
Our Volunteer Centre is also working with City of Wolverhampton Council and other partners to co-ordinate those wishing to volunteer.

Due to the overwhelming response from the community, many organisations are now up to capacity and therefore volunteering opportunities are now becoming limited. We would like to keep your registration details for when the situation changes and more opportunities become available in the future.
Register now

Please share these links with other organisations and individuals who may wish to volunteer.

We will be updating this page regularly, but don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter & follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn for the latest.
