Andover Coronavirus Support Networks Rainbow

Test Valley Borough Council has published a list of local volunteer groups that are helping those who are self-isolating due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There are more than 50 groups providing a range of support to hundreds of residents, from picking up food and prescriptions, to running errands.

The list will also enable those wishing to volunteer,  including anyone who signed up to the national NHS volunteer scheme who may not have been called on to assist so far, to find the groups operating in their local area.

Leader of Test Valley Borough Council, Councillor Phil North, said: “These amazing volunteer groups are already supporting hundreds of people across the borough. But I have no doubt that there will still be some of our residents who are unaware of the help available.

“By pulling together the full list of contact details, we hope it is now easier for people to get in touch with their local groups, whether that is to access support or offer their services as a volunteer.

“I know I have said it many times before but I have been truly blown away by the community response to the pandemic. The work of the volunteer groups is helping to ensure that our shielded residents remain safe and well during this time. Their work is truly helping to save lives.”

The council is also working with its community services partner, Unity, to run the Test Valley Community Helpline, which puts people in contact with their local volunteer groups if they aren’t able to contact them direct. Residents can access the helpline on 0330 400 4116
