Urgent Response Volunteers

Do you live in one of these areas - Clacton/Harwich/Brightlingsea/Manningtree and surrounding villages?

We are expanding our team of volunteers who are willing to help out during unexpected events - from pandemics to severe weather conditions and major incidents.

Please note: No emergency response/first aid skills are expected. 

Our urgent response volunteers will support local communities in whatever way we can including:

-Driving people and supplies where needed

-Providing refreshments for people in rest centres

-Welcoming people in rest centres and completing admin tasks

-Dog walking if owners are confined to home and can't get out

-Working alongside other voluntary organisations and local authority and statutory service partners 

This is not a regular commitment - volunteers will only be called upon in a situation that requires an urgent response. People can sign up and offer availability when they can (for eg in times of furlough).

This is a great opportunity to become part of the wider, established, very friendly CVST volunteer team. And to support your community when they need it most.


Flexible, reliable, team player
