*COVID-19 Update – November 2020*
In response to the new, national COVID-19 restrictions that begin this month, Daventry Volunteer Centre will continue to provide emergency response and support to people isolating and those vulnerable to the effects of the pandemic. With our fantastic team of COVID-19 volunteers, we are available to help people without a support network in our area with prescription delivery, shopping trips, telephone befriending and other ad-hoc tasks that will help them live safely and feel connected to their community.
To enquire about emergency response support please contact us on 01327 300614 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm).
Unfortunately, many of our projects are having to pause again or change their working, including:
The New Street Café, our community Café for older people, will be paused for the duration of the new restrictions.
The New Street Centre meeting hall will be closed to groups for the duration.
Our Happy@Home project will continue to offer telephone befriending and support as part of our COVID-19 emergency response. Home visits remain paused.
Our Building Better Opportunities programme will continue to offer support to existing participants and be open for new enquiries regarding employment support.
The Daventry District Timebank will be co-ordinated at distance with regular contact made between Timebank members.
We will continue to be here for our community through this time of uncertainty.
If you would like to volunteer as part of our COVID-19 response, please do get in touch by telephone or via the website: www.daventryvolunteers.org.uk.
