Just a quick update on what’s been happening at The Volunteer Centre. In March, WVSC put a call out for volunteers to respond to the Covid 19 situation.
We have had over 600 people respond to help out to volunteer across Wolverhampton and our focus over the last few months has been in responding to this.
The good majority of these volunteers have been placed and have been helping some of the most vulnerable residents in our City.
The majority of organisations are now up to capacity for volunteers but we are still endeavouring to continue placing as many volunteers as possible. We thank everyone for their patience.
The Volunteer Centre is still offering a day to day service for volunteering, however, many organisations have suspended their volunteer recruitment due to the impact of Covid 19. So, once again, placements are taking a little longer to be offered.
Our BBO Bridges Project is still accepting referrals and continues to operate under these unique circumstances.
Organisations are slowly beginning to offer volunteer opportunities but it’s going to take a while for everyone to start operating at full capacity.
Thanks to everyone who has come forward at this moment in time and we look forward to working with you in the future and your volunteering journey.
Pete Emms: Volunteer Centre Coordinator.
