During the current crisis, both statutory and voluntary sector services will be overstretched, operating in different ways, and changing quickly to respond to our communities unmet need.

Harnessing VOLUNTEER POWER in as organised and safe way as possible is crucial.

In April, we had an unprecedented response from the people of Swansea, with more than 1,400 people coming forward in a few weeks. At that point we had to put a hold on new volunteer recruitment.

As time has gone on, groups are starting to recruit volunteers again for both usual, and Covid specific roles.
