Volunteering - Hinckley & Bosworth

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus many community groups and good neighbour schemes have been operating across our Borough.

Alongside these groups, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, working in partnership with Next Generation, launched the Coronavirus Community Response Scheme. This was set up in order to reach out to those residents who do not have computer/internet or social media access, meeting gaps in provision. 

We have been overwhelmed by the response from people wishing to help during this difficult time. Hundreds have expressed an interest in volunteering, and although that is incredible, we know that there are simply not enough opportunities to meet this demand and we cannot guarantee a volunteer role for everyone.

Currently, we are working hard to support voluntary and community groups during this period of recovery. We are helping them to assess what their needs are and supporting them to recruit and manage volunteers safely. Please bear with us as we work through this process and prioritise supporting organisations at this time. 

Many organisations are having to run their activities in a different way, taking into the account the government guidelines, but will still need help from volunteers in the community. 

We are currently in need of new volunteers for our telephone befriending scheme, 'Keep Well - Hinckley & Bosworth'. 

If you are interested in joining our team of volunteer telephone befrienders, please follow the link below to complete the Volunteer Registration Form.
