Flintshire Local Voluntary Council – Supporting Voluntary and Community Activity
We are funded by Welsh Government and Flintshire County Council to support voluntary and community activity across Flintshire. Our organisation has been in existence for over 20 years.
If you are:
- An individual wanting to help your local community
- A Voluntary and Community group wanting to help out/inform others of your current situation
- A Public Sector worker seeking the best way to access safe, coordinated voluntary and community-based support for the Residents of Flintshire.
We will do our best to help.
As all organisations are under immense pressure at the moment, we are concentrating our efforts on being the conduit between support offered and support needed, whilst supporting organisations, some newly formed, with their governance and planning.
We have set a dedicated vacancy on the Volunteering in Wales website, a nationally recognised portal for potential volunteers to register their interest in volunteering. Please be aware that you’re required to register on the Volunteering Wales website first (unless you already have a volunteer log-in). Once registered, search for the opportunity entitled “Covid – 19 Volunteering in Flintshire” and select the “Join” button.
We will keep in regular contact with everyone who registers, linking them with a community need, as and when appropriate. We are asking interested parties to bear with us as many groups have been inundated/are struggling with their own day to day operations.
We need to be mindful of the risks of linking our vulnerable residents with unregulated support, so we are working on the best possible ways to harness the willingness and energy of those who are well and willing with the key areas of need – to protect the helper as well as the person needing help.
The FLVC staff team are working mostly from home but can be contacted in office hours via the following contact numbers. Please bear with us if you do not receive an instant response.
