Volunteers supporting Dover
At the start of the Covid19 emergency, a wide group of Dover organisations joined together to form Together4Dover under the umbrella of Dover Big Local. Launched on April 3rd 2020, the helpline service has been offering support to local residents throughout the pandemic but was suspended on August 1st when shielding for most people ceased.
If you need help with errands, the NHS Volunteer Responders service may be able to help you. They can be reached on 0808 196 3646 between 8 am and 8 pm.
Over 80 local Dover people offered to volunteer which included manning the helpline phones, running shopping and prescription errands, as well as delivering hot meals and fresh food deliveries for referrals received for local families in need. There has also been a laundry service offered, together with counselling services provided by Harmony Trust Therapies.
In terms of statistics, during the pandemic Together4Dover completed around 600 errands, took over 1,100 phone calls and delivered over 800 hot meals and more than 800 food deliveries.
