The Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership (VCSEP) is offering additional support to the VCS and other local organisations or groups at this time. This might be in a number of areas, including logistical support (e.g. transport), sourcing volunteers, personal protective equipment (PPE) or specialist equipment. You can find a useful overview of the support they are able to provide here.

You should use this service for needs that local councils for voluntary service, local authority hubs and local resilience forums cannot answer.

Community Southwark will be acting as a representative of the local VCS so if you have any questions, please contact [email protected]. You can request VCSEP support directly by filling in this form

The VCSEP represents a range of volunteer organisations collaborating on emergency responses regionally and nationally. See further information about VCSEP here.
