GOOD NEWS NEEDED

There hasn’t been a lot of positive news lately – between COVID-19 and the recent devastating floods across Wales, the mood seems pretty sombre across the nation.

What we haven’t been lacking in is stories of resilient communities coming together – for example the news that groups such as Coronavirus Support Blaenau Gwent have been assembling volunteers to help people in need.

We’ll be sharing good news stories and examples of good practise as part of this newsletter. If you know of any other positive stories like this of communities pulling together to cope with COVID-19 then please let us know!

OUR STANCE ON THE CONTINUING PUBLIC HEALTH DEVELOPMENTS

Ruth Marks has written a piece on the role of WCVA and the current focus of our work to support voluntary organisations.

As part of the ongoing response to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), WCVA is paying close attention to advice provided by UK Government as well as guidance from Public Health Wales.

We would recommend that everyone follow NHS hygiene advice.

Due to the current advice on the Coronavirus we’ve taken the decision to close our offices. However, all of our staff have been equipped to work from home and we’re still here doing everything we can to support voluntary organisations during this difficult time.

We’re currently suspending all face-to-face training and events, but will continue to deliver online learning where possible.

We will continue to monitor any developments and will inform the voluntary sector of any further action we take as things change.
