St Michael's Community Support Network

COVID-19

Our aim to make sure nobody in St Michaels Ward, Liverpool and beyond is left without support.

In a very short time, we set up a non-partisan volunteer network in the area and are coordinating alongside councillors, cabinet members, community leaders, emergency services and health professionals and also with the local authority to meet the needs of local people. 

The following is a segment from BBC national news that covered some of our volunteers checking on residents in the L18 area.



It is still unknown how our community might be impacted by the crisis and how different services will be able to respond to resident's needs. We are constantly evolving what we do and our response to the community's needs.  We are following the the guidance of local authorities, public health bodies, and medical professionals to ensure that any action we take is safe.

We need some financial support to cover basic expenses for administration and volunteers (web & email hosting, stationery, fuel, emergency food purchases for vulnerable people, telephone and SMS text services).

We have DBS checked volunteers in place as well as a safeguarding team and are tracking everything we do from start to finish.  We are also working in partnership with South Liverpool Food Banks, who will use our volunteers for food parcel deliveries.

We have set up a dedicated bank account for the network and have appointed two auditors to oversee any financial transactions.

We currently have 236 volunteers.

Your generosity would be hugely appreciated by those elderly and vulnerable residents in and around our community that are frightened and depend on our support.

Thank you.
