SVP England and Wales is closely monitoring the Covid-19 outbreak and its impact on our work in the coming weeks and months. We are taking all steps necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the people we help, members, staff and other volunteers while continuing to operate and assist those in need.
Phased reopening of St Vincent's community shops
In line with Government guidance, some of our St Vincent's community shops have reopened from Monday, 15 June. Click here to see the shops that have opened. Our support centres continue to operate on skeleton staff.
As part of Government guidelines to ease restrictions we have carried out Covid-19 risk assessments for our current sites and services.
During the Covid-19 crisis, some of the usual ways the SVP operates have changed:
If you need help from the SVP, we will still try our best to assist you. However, for the time being we may offer help that avoids direct person-to-person contact in order to reduce the risk of infection.
If you would like to volunteer with us and support your local community during the Covid-19 crisis, please visit our Crisis Help page.
If you are an SVP member, we have prepared special guidance for you. This can be found on the Conference Bulletin Board in the members’ area (If you don’t know your login, please contact us on 07551 441752).
