Repairs & Maintenance
Due to Government restrictions and the requirement to reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus, we have had to restrict our repairs and maintenance service to emergency (life and limb) repairs only. All non emergency repairs, and all cyclical maintenance and planned renewals are currently on hold until further notice. Please continue to report your repairs to us as we are logging them for priority work when restrictions are lifted.
Coronavirus - Repairs and Maintenance Service (27.03.2020)
National Volunteering Plan
A new ‘Scotland Cares’ campaign has been launched to encourage people to volunteer during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
While the most important ask for the public remains to stay at home and follow the essential public health guidance, people who are healthy and not at risk can volunteer to provide practical or emotional help to those most in need.
Those wanting to volunteer to support their communities have three options which are signposted from the Ready Scotland website:
• returning NHS workers will be directed to existing voluntary arrangements in NHS Scotland
• people wishing to offer their support to our public services, including the NHS and local authorities, will be directed to a site co-ordinated by the British Red Cross
• those looking for opportunities with other charities or community groups in their area will be directed to Volunteer Scotland for information
You can only volunteer to carry out tasks which involve leaving your home, once a day, if you are not required to be isolating and are not in any risk categories. Please check the latest advice at NHS Inform.
To sign up, please follow the relevant links below:
•Returning Health & Social Care workers can sign up here - NHS Coronavirus Recruitment
•Join the British Red Cross to support our public services including the NHS and local authorities - British Red Cross
•Sign up to Volunteer Scotland to support other charities and groups in your community - Volunteer Scotland
Please be assured that as soon as your help is needed, you will be contacted. Where possible your offer will be matched with specific needs.
