Wiltshire Council publishes directory of volunteer groups

The communities of Wiltshire have risen to the challenge of COVID-19 to make sure people are supported through this very difficult time

Wiltshire Council Leader, Cllr Philip Whitehead

Wiltshire Council has published a directory of community volunteer groups that have been set up throughout the county, in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

So far, Wiltshire Council has been made aware of more than 100 groups that are supporting their fellow residents throughout Wiltshire during this difficult time.

Although not a formal endorsement of the groups, Wiltshire Council thought it would be useful for people to know the support that's being provided in their communities and their contact details, should anyone wish to get in touch with them.

The directory can be found online - and will be updated as regularly as possible.

Wiltshire Council Leader, Cllr Philip Whitehead, said: "The communities of Wiltshire have risen to the challenge of COVID-19 to make sure people are supported through this very difficult time.
"Although our directory isn't a definitive list, we hope it provides a good understanding of the type of support that's out there. We hope this helps people link up with local groups and helps facilitate even more support.

"I'd like to thank everybody for their efforts and for doing Wiltshire proud we will be there to support any group that needs us."

To help understand how many groups have been set-up and the support they are providing, the council has also put together a short survey to capture the relevant information, which will give them a good understanding of the great working taking place. The survey can be found online.
