COVID-19 Bridgend County Borough Third Sector Response Service, Resource and Capacity Audit

The Covid-19 outbreak is an exceptional event that will have a considerable impact on all of our day to day activities. BAVO is so grateful to all local community organisations and volunteers who are helping people through these challenging times. We want to help you!

Our Community Navigator team is mapping what is currently happening and available within the third sector in Bridgend County Borough as a Covid-19 response. In order to help inform our colleagues and partners in Bridgend County who are involved in organising support, can you please complete our form below to detail the services and resources you are offering:
