Self Help Groups

Information from the NCC Emergency Planning Officer (EPO) on behalf of the Local Resilience Forum (LRF).

We are aware that there are many groups and individuals that are volunteering to help neighbours and vulnerable people in their communities during the Coronavirus outbreak. The information below explains how you can help and register your group, or as an individual to support this coordinated effort through this Resilience Cell. Any group / individual will be asked to register, the LRF will then know you are available to provide help, the second part will be for those that need help to register.

The cell with also provide help and guidance to the volunteers, and be able to call upon the appropriate agencies where needed.  NHW members can register through another group, (if their scheme is not registered with the LRF cell) i.e. local Parish/Community Council or another existing group.   

A website with on line form to sign up to volunteer set up https://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-updates/Pages/volunteer-to-help-those-in-need-coronavirus.aspx as well as a volunteer registration line 0300 126 1000 (option 5)

It is important that you register so that local people you can potentially help are aware you are legitimate, an not a scam.
