Community organisations are being asked to lodge their information on an online centralised database to help coordinate community efforts in the pandemic fight.

John Gallanders, Chief Officer of Wrexham’s Association of Voluntary Organisations (AVOW), has said “In the unprecedented situation we are finding ourselves in it is vital that those organisations that are providing support in our communities share details of their support on a central database to ensure that a resource is readily available at Postcode level of what is available. Professional from across many organisations and agencies ned central access to information on what is already available to support members of the Public. Members of the public are also able to access information support directly around their Postcode.”

“The below leaflet gives information on how to add details onto the website which is a resource that covers the whole of Wales. Members of the public can you the same link for their search.

John added, “ We need to look at maximising resources that are available to support residents in our communities across Wales to ensure they can gain information directly, in addition to all of the formal groups there is a great deal of Street Level support that is occurring through Social media and Local Councillors- all of this is welcome and forms a bedrock for the support that will be available in our communities.”

The site already holds details of many 1000’s of support organisations and the effectiveness will increase as transitions add more and more details.
