This Council

 

Thanks the huge number of people and community groups (including town and parish councils) who volunteered or offered to volunteer in their communities during the first phase of the pandemic.

 

Recognises that there is an opportunity to engage with individuals and volunteer groups that could help address long term issues such as loneliness isolation and mental health especially anxiety in our communities.

 

Acknowledges and supports the work undertaken by the cross party Covid-19 Recovery Working Groups in considering what is needed to enable new community groups to keep volunteers engaged in their communities for the longer term and supports these principles being incorporated into the recommendations to be considered by Cabinet in September 2020.
