West Dunbartonshire Cares
The West Dunbartonshire Cares campaign brought together over 400 local volunteers, from across all our communities to provide support during the Covid pandemic. Your offers of help and assistance were overwhelming, keeping over 1000 local residents safe and supported.
The Covid19 emergency has been an unprecedented event, but other incidences such as extreme weather events have showed that there are times when a strong community response helps to keep everyone safe and supported.
West Dunbartonshire Cares is a local resilience initiative, maintaining a register of local volunteers willing to be contacted to help in any emergency situations. Some of the skills we are looking to be able to call on include:
- Willingness to offer transport
- Hold up-to-date First Aid qualifications
- Willing to staff local welfare centres
- Willing to shop for/deliver to neighbourhoods
You can sign up here at any time and review your involvement annually.
