New volunteering platform launched to support needy


Volunteers are being empowered to provide welfare checks, deliver supplies and offer essential transport to vulnerable people through a new online platform linking community members with charities, NGOs and councils in need of support. The NSW Government is encouraging volunteers and organisations to register on the new Emergency Support Volunteering website to help support people impacted by COVID-19. The pandemic is placing a significant strain on volunteer-driven organisations that support vulnerable members of our community, and many require more people to help meet demand. The platform allows you to register your details online and an organisation in your local area will get in touch and offer volunteering opportunities when they arise. The safety and wellbeing of participants is a high priority.  The NSW Government has partnered with the Centre for Volunteering to develop the platform which is also operating in Victoria and Western Australia.


COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
