Celebrating our volunteers

To mark Volunteers’ Week this week, we’ve been celebrating our wonderful volunteering community who are supporting those in need across the Royal Borough.

We’ve heard from volunteers Debbie, Andrew and Deirdre about the work they’ve been doing to support residents during the pandemic and prior to it. Check out the video messages and quotes from our volunteering community on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

If helping your friends and neighbours over the last few months has given you a taste of how rewarding volunteering is, please visit our website to find out more about the ways in which you can help.

To register as a volunteer or request support from our community volunteering hub, email: volunteer or visit the volunteering section of our website.

It is aimed at small businesses who were not eligible for the previously announced Small Business Grant Fund or the Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Fund. The fund is intended to help cover fixed costs faced by the businesses where they can demonstrate that they cannot meet these.

The scheme is due to run for the 2020/2021 financial year only.

Full details of the scheme, including how to apply are now live on the Royal Borough business rates website page.
