Subject: COVID -19: SDC Volunteer Registration and Resident Call for Assistance Scheme
Thank you all so much for the work you are doing and help you are offering. The response in the District has been truly incredible.
Here at Sevenoaks District Council we have been working to establish a volunteer register scheme for those wishing to volunteer and the means for residents to log or call in with a request for practical assistance. The idea is that this scheme supports and links in with all of your community initiatives.
This is now live on our website:
Volunteers can register online via https://myaccount.sevenoaks.gov.uk/community-help/ Any volunteer registering will receive a Community Volunteer lanyard with an unique identification number on. These can either be collected from the Council's Reception (whilst it remains open) or posted/delivered. The resident being assisted can, if they wish, telephone the Council's Contact Centre to check the identification of the volunteer.
Residents can telephone or complete an online form to request practical assistance. This request will be sent through to the listed Volunteer lead for the Parish/Town.
If you and your volunteers would like to register and receive a numbered Community Voluntary lanyard please do so either online by completing online form https://myaccount.sevenoaks.gov.uk/community-help/ or by calling the Council's Contact Centre on 01732 227000. The lanyards are printed and ready to be distributed
