Thank you to all the wondeful people who have stepped up to volunteer. So far we have recruited the following COVID19 Powys Health & Care Volunteers.
234 registered volunteers
202 completed assessment forms
Of the 234:
177 registered as Health and Care Drivers
32 registered to support residential homes
55 registered to support Domiciliary Care
52 registered to help prepare food in hospitals
These are registered with PAVO to be placed in PTHB & PCC settings (or their commissioned services) to support statutory services:
As we await placement requests from PCC & PTHB a number of volunteers have been placed with GP surgeries & pharmacies to help with prescription deliveries. Most GP surgeries and pharmacies across Powys have signed up to our scheme.
Until such time as we begin to place volunteers in statutory setting we are verifying qualifications etc & offering online training
We still need more volunteers visit bit.ly/PowysVolunteers to sign up for formal volunteering or contact your local community group to find out more about informal opportunities in your area.
