Coronavirus - volunteer to help

Coronavirus is a challenge which requires all of us as a community to pull together. As an MP, I am working with a range of local organisations to make sure we work together effectively.

One way in which people in North Shropshire can help is by volunteering their time.
If you would like to help the League of Friends to the RJAH, including volunteering, they can be contacted via their website (https://www.friendsrjah.org.uk/volunteers/)

If you would like to volunteer to help the NHS during the Covid vaccination programme, you can apply here. This includes the chance to volunteer as a Steward Volunteer (Covid19 vaccinations).

You can also sign up to join the NHS Volunteer Responders here. You can volunteer for a number of different roles, including: 

Community Response volunteer: This role involves collecting shopping, medication or other essential supplies for someone who is self-isolating, and delivering these supplies to their home.

Patient Transport volunteer: This role supports the NHS by providing transport to patients who are medically fit for discharge, and ensuring that they are settled safely back in to their home.

NHS Transport volunteer: This role involves transporting equipment, supplies and/or medication between NHS services and sites, it may also involve assisting pharmacies with medication delivery.

Check-in and Chat volunteer: This role provides short-term telephone support to individuals who are at risk of loneliness as a consequence of self-isolation.

If you are in need of assistance, please email me on patersono@parliament.uk and I will liaise with Shropshire Council to put you in touch with the help you need.
