Many people recognize the SSVP England and Wales as a primary source of support for vulnerable or isolated people. In this time of increased need created by the Covid-19 pandemic, members of the public have approached the SSVP to volunteer to help people in need.
As a result, they are currently recruiting volunteers for our new ‘Knock and drop‘ service delivering emergency food parcels and medicine to isolated or housebound people across England and Wales. These volunteers will collect food from supermarkets and deliver to the doorsteps of vulnerable people.
Jon Cornwall, Head of Membership says: “[…] Every day our members have been phoning and delivering essentials to thousands of vulnerable people around up and down the country. This work isn’t going to end soon, and we need members of the public to join us in our ‘Knock and drop’ service.”
