BAVO has been asked to lead on co-ordinating a community response to COVID-19 in Bridgend County Borough, working with voluntary and community groups and the volunteer centre and connecting people that need support to assets in their local community.

We will be working in partnership with Bridgend County Borough Council, Public Service Board members, Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board and Cwm Taf Morgannwg Public Health team.  We are also connected to Third Sector Support Wales, the national network of CVCs and WCVA.

COVID-19: Community response

Bridgend County Borough is rich with active voluntary, community and faith based organisations and volunteers that will already be developing plans to support vulnerable people in localities.

There will be an additional groundswell of local people wanting to play a role in supporting COVID-19 efforts.

BAVO will look to harness this support in a safe and effective manner ensuring efforts are well co-ordinated and duplication is minimised.  

We will work with the sector to explore options for mobilising support for vulnerable and excluded groups with additional expertise being provided for key partners. We will also consider how the sector can provide new support to vulnerable adults/families that need to self-isolate or who are stressed and anxious about COVID-19

We are working with Bridgend County Borough Council and other partners to:

(1)      Co-ordinate community action 

(2)      Support safe volunteering and volunteer practice

The need for public bodies and health practitioners to be able to communicate directly with people when dealing with this type of health emergency has never been greater. Visit
