Giving for Gedling

In response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, Gedling Borough Council has established the Giving for Gedling Volunteer Network. We’re asking for volunteers, as well as volunteer organisations and community organisations to register interest to help support vulnerable and elderly members of our community, including with dropping off food and essential supplies.

Thank you for all the offers of help and volunteering thus far, please sign up to be part of our local community’s coordinated efforts. Working together and looking out for each we can face the challenging and difficult circumstances ahead.

The network will be organised by Gedling Borough Council to coordinate and facilitate offers of help from local residents and community groups to support the most vulnerable in the community such as the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions.
