Pitsea Needs You!!!
Pitsea Needs You – Increasing Volunteering in Pitsea Monday 17 July 2017
Do you provide a service in Pitsea, are Pitsea based and are working and seeking volunteers? Then why not come along to our event and help shape the campaign to find the best people to volunteer.
Our campaign aims to increase volunteering in Pitsea, as well as improving health and well-being in the area. Partners within the Basildon Borough, have identified improving physical activity and reducing social isolation among older people as one of the key strategic challenges that could be addressed by a campaign focused on recruiting volunteers to help. Pitsea has been identified as an area within the district where a campaign like this could make a real difference to the community.
To find out more about this campaign, which is being supported by the Basildon CVS, Essex County Council, and Basildon Borough Council, we need your help and support to be effective. A briefing for organisations/groups is being held at The Place in Pitsea on July 17th 6.30 – 8.30 pm (to include a light supper).
Chris Evans, Chief Officer at Basildon CVS said “this is a great opportunity for you to help shape some of the key messages we will be promoting. We need to understand what volunteering opportunities currently exists, identify organisations who want to be involved and how best to promote the campaign to people interested in volunteering. He continued, “We know the need is there, we also know volunteering can help your health and well-being”
Registration for the event is free. You can book your place here. For more information please contact Chris on 01268294781
