PAVO, within the county‚Äôs partnership arrangements, has established a Community Sector Emergency Response Team (C-SERT).


This comprises county organisations that offer volunteer support and emergency response services alongside partners from Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board.


C-SERT has adopted a three-pronged approach to supporting people and communities:

1. Community Support Networks
2. COVID-19 Powys Health and Care Volunteers
