Urgent Response - General Helper

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 with general duties during unexpected events - from severe weather conditions to major incidents.

Please note: No emergency response/First Aid skills are expected. 

General help volunteers will support local communities in whatever way we can:

-Greeting people at rest centres as they arrive.

-Assisting with admin, logging names, addresses etc.

-Offering friendly support to people who may be stressed and confused.

-Relaying up-to-date appropriate and accurate information to people.

Volunteers will work in a team with other volunteers or members of staff.

This is not a regular commitment - volunteer drivers will only be called upon in an emergency event affecting their area.

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



Flexible, reliable, team player

Friendly, compassionate

Good listener 

Adaptable and calm
