Royal Borough of Greenwich need more local volunteers to meet the demand of supporting at risk and vulnerable residents in response to Covid 19 in Thamesmead.
Please see flyer attached to see volunteering tasks you can get involved in and how to register. You can choose the tasks you’d be prepared to do and state when you would be available to help (so you won’t be expected to always be on call).
