How can you get involved
Over the last 2 weeks we have been supporting our local community and especially those who are homeless by providing food, hot drinks and showers at Jubilee Central as well as working with Emmaus and Hull City Council to help get those who are homeless into accommodation. We are now in a situation where those we are in contact with, have places to stay so we are discouraging people from visiting our building to prevent people putting themselves at risk of developing COVID-19.
We are now considering how we continue to serve our city during this time and one of the ways we can do that is by partnering with some of the great organisations and initiatives that are providing vital need at this time. Below are some of the ways that you can serve during this time.
Based at Jubilee Central, Hull Foodbank need additional support due to the extra pressure they are under as they provide food parcels to those in need. Roles include sorting, delivering and collecting food and admin Monday-Friday. For more information email email@example.com
Hull City Council Volunteers
Hull City Council are urgently trying to organise volunteer support to help people in need. This includes helping with tasks like shopping, medicine collection, dog walking and befriending. To join a volunteer team in Hull go to http://www.hull.gov.uk/health-and-wellbeing/public-health/coronavirus-volunteering
NHS GoodSam Scheme
The NHS need vital support from volunteers during this time and have 4 volunteer roles available . If you can join the NHS team across our region, in one of the 4 volunteer roles available. Information is available here: https://www.goodsamapp.org/nhs
We do not want any of our church members to put at unnecessary risk at this time so anyone with underlying health issues or in a household with someone who is, should not look to volunteer. Also we need to follow government advice on self- isolating for any one showing symptoms or those in their household.
We will continue to look for ways to serve our city and keep checking this page for more information about how we will be doing that in the days, weeks and months to come.
