Staffordshire County Council need your help – volunteer to help our Covid response

Dear Residents

Staffordshire County Council have provided the following:

We need your help – volunteer to help our Covid response

Early in the pandemic, we asked for volunteers to help make sure critical services could continue in the face of rising Covid-19 cases. More than 700 of you volunteered, which meant vital tasks, like caring for the vulnerable, could continue. We’re calling on our army of volunteers once more, to help at this critical stage of the pandemic. The NHS will soon be rolling out mass vaccination centres in the county and is looking for our support to man the centres and to make sure priority groups get the vaccine. Likewise, our hospitals also need support.

We also need support at our testing centres, and to identify and contact people in the care sector who are eligible for the vaccine. Helping in these critical areas means we can test more people, make sure those who need vaccinations get them in good time and free up hospital staff with clinical experience to help in critical areas.

We’ve made a commitment to provide support where we can. If you think you can spare some time to help, either inside or outside of work hours, please speak to your manager first and sign up to I Count.
