Coronavirus update

Somerset County Council is currently suspending volunteer recruitment for its usual roles, and we are focussing instead on supporting those affected by Corona Virus. We are working with Spark Somerset (our voluntary sector infrastructure organisation) to understand the vast number of charities and informal groups in Somerset that are specifically offering support to those affected by COVID-19, and this information will be used to raise awareness of the support that’s on offer throughout the county and provide opportunities for people to get involved.

If you are a group, or an individual looking for opportunities to help out, please go to or call Spark Somerset on 01460 202970.
