Croydon Voluntary Action (CVA) is coordinating Croydon’s voluntary and community sector effort to maintain social connections across the borough.
They are compiling a directory of services and activities still running so ask that all groups email firstname.lastname@example.org with brief details of whatever support the group is managing to provide.
The telephone helpline for vulnerable people who need support is 020 8253 7076. Please pass this on to anyone who may need it.
For anyone who is able to volunteer, Croydon Voluntary Action has a very short form to fill in. Click here. Complete and submit this to the Volunteer Centre team, who will then get in touch with you.
CVA Resource Centre is operating as a Community Hub – a food and medicines collection and delivery point. To make donations please contact them on 020 8253 1268 between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday, or email Shalina.Alabaksh@cvalive.org.uk
