Advice on volunteering and community support during the Coronavirus outbreak

Rother Voluntary Action

Rother Voluntary Action are coordinating a response to the call for volunteers to look after vulnerable residents and are aware there are a lot of community groups setting themselves up to help too. If you are contacted by any groups wanting to know how they can help, please ask them to email office@rva.uk.com with details of who they are, the area they cover and their contact details. They will then be listed on the RVA’s Coronavirus local groups page.

RVA can also help already established groups and organisations that need volunteers – read more on their website.

Battle Town Council support scheme

Battle Town Council is making a list of people willing to help and people in need of help, so that they can put those in need in touch with a neighbour or signpost them to an organisation that may be able to help.

Extra support information leaflet

East Sussex County Council have developed a new leaflet of useful contacts for residents during the coronavirus pandemic to help people get support when they need it.

The leaflet includes advice on how to get support if you’re shielding or self-isolating, mental health support, getting medical help, the welfare benefits helpline, online library services and Good Neighbour Schemes amongst a range of other services.
