Walsall’s communities, and the voluntary, community and faith organisations which work alongside them are already playing a significant role in the response to the coronavirus outbreak and supporting those most vulnerable to the impact. We are blessed with active communities and strong community organisations already working hard to ensure support is available to those who need it.
One Walsall is working alongside Walsall Council to support and coordinate the community response, and to provide guidance and advice to local community action.
The Council’s approach is to develop a coronavirus response hub in each locality, building on the work of the existing ‘Making Connections’ programme Hubs. Four locality hubs have now been set up to help vulnerable residents in the Walsall borough, with 300 volunteers already coming forward. More information will be shared over the coming days, but please see the attached flyer to learn more.
