Covid Volunteers Web Portal and Support Helpline Now Live

LCVS has been working closely with Liverpool City Council to develop the Covid Volunteers web portal and helpline and the support helpline.

Liverpool City Council has now established two telephone hotlines, to help our communities combat the coronavirus challenge.

The volunteer hotline is 0151 233 3068

Call this number to join the army of volunteers who can help people in their local communities – be it to deliver medication to those in self-isolation, or to check in with neighbours. This phone line can also be used to volunteer for Liverpool Foodbanks who require lots of volunteers across the city.

We are also calling out to organisations and businesses who want to help. Basically, if you are healthy and fit, and are not living with someone with symptoms of Covid-19, Liverpool needs you.

Please register now, so that if and when we identify a need in the coming weeks or months we can reach out to you for help.

This hotline will be manned from 8am to 6pm, seven days a week. You can also sign up to the volunteer programme online, via the Liverpool City Council website: sign up to the Liverpool Covid Volunteers programme here.

The support telephone number is 0151 233 3066

This second hotline has been established for anyone who feels they need support with basic tasks because they don’t have a support network of friends and family in place.

This hotline will be manned from 8am to 6pm, seven days a week. You can also request help online, via the Liverpool City Council website: click here to request support online.

Colin Heaney, co-CEO of LCVS said, “LCVS is encouraging all of our voluntary and community sector partners to register; if you can provide any support, be it helping to deliver food and other essential supplies or simply helping to identify the most vulnerable in your community, please sign up.

“This way we can see what provision we have and make sure that there are no gaps in the system. The current situation is unprecedented and our focus at the moment has to be on how, with our normal services so disrupted, we can support the most vulnerable in our communities.”
