St Helens CCG has teamed up with the council and other partners in St Helens Cares to support the Street Champions volunteer scheme run by St Helens Voluntary and Community Action (VCA). Could you join us?
We have teamed up with Halton & St Helens Voluntary and Community Action (VCA) for our new Street Champions volunteer scheme to encourage residents to take a more active role in their community. A neighbour may contact a Street Champion to walk their dog, buy essential items or may just want to talk to someone for support.
It has been wonderful to see the outpouring of kindness and community spirit being spread right across the borough during this pandemic and we would like every street across the borough to have at least one Street Champion.
The VCA also need volunteers to help by:
- Delivering supplies or medication
- Making a friendly phone call to someone self-isolating
- Sharing key messages across your community. For up-to-date messages, visit 111.nhs.uk/covid-19
