Please see below an important message from Sandwell Council, which SCVO are circulating on their behalf, regarding our collective response to the coronavirus situation in the borough.
COVID-19 letter to all voluntary sector organisations in Sandwell
We are reaching out to you as voluntary sector organisations in Sandwell to see how we can work together through this time of crisis to ensure that people in Sandwell who have care and support needs receive the help they require.
We now need you to let us know what assistance you can contribute to ensuring the ongoing care and support needs of people within the community. We understand that some of you may be considering ceasing your current service provision and we would welcome any contribution of staff time or availability of staff and other support options which we can coordinate across the 6 towns of Sandwell.
Equally, we recognise and understand you may be struggling around your substantiality. It would therefore be helpful to understand what support the council can provide to contribute to your ongoing service provision.
In light of the above, please complete and return the two sections detailed below as soon as possible. We can then consider not only how best to support you, but also how we can try to pull all of the available resources together to support the vulnerable people in Sandwell. Once we have received your responses we will be collating them and producing a response that will be targeted to the different elements of care and support provision and will advise you of support options that may be available. We will also be in touch to discuss with you how we can work together to mobilise our shared resources through this difficult time.
When completed please return to: firstname.lastname@example.org
