Coronavirus - volunteer to help

Coronavirus represents a very significant public health challenge that requires all of us as a community to pull together. I am working as the MP with a range of local community organisations to try to make sure we work together effectively.

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.  

If you would like to volunteer to help, you can 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.
