Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS) will be supporting the recruitment and coordination of volunteers for non-clinical roles at vaccination sites across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) using TeamKinetic – a volunteer recruitment and management platform that allows people to register and commit to volunteering opportunities/sessions that are available.
If you would like to register to volunteer at vaccination sites, you can register by clicking on the Team Kinetic button below.
The local coordination programme, funded for six months by North Bristol NHS Trust, delivered by VANS on behalf of The West of England Civil Society Partnership (the network of voluntary sector infrastructure partners), will work alongside existing provision and volunteers to meet demand in non-clinical and stewarding volunteer roles. Working with other agencies providing similar support including, the national Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) and Avon and Somerset Fire and Rescue, our aim is not to duplicate what is already in place but provide a coordinated approach to ensure that General Practices, Community Pharmacies, and other community vaccination sites across BNSSG are able to access suitable volunteers to enable effective roll out of the vaccine within communities.
We recognise that it is time consuming to access, schedule and coordinate volunteers and having the required resources to manage and support volunteers effectively is vital to maintaining the vaccination roll out. We offer a tailored approach to meet the individual requirements of each vaccination site and our team are committed to ensuring that a quality customer and volunteer experience is at the forefront of everything we do.
If your General Practice, Community Pharmacy or vaccination site would like our support to access volunteers, then please get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01934 416486
