Joint statement from Kingston Council, Kingston Voluntary Action and Volunteering Kingston
"It has been great to hear about so many in our community wanting to volunteer to help those needing support at the worrying time.
"Kingston Council, Kingston Voluntary Action and Volunteering Kingston have launched Kingston Stronger Together to coordinate volunteers.
"It is important that as well as helping those in need, we do it as safely as possible to protect them against the very small minority that do not have their best interests at heart and wish to defraud or harm them.
"We do not want to stop friends, families and neighbours who know each other from helping each other, so please do continue to do that, and use Kingston Stronger Together, if you are happy to help others you do not know yet.
"If you are a community or volunteer group who has clients in need please visit kva.org.uk to register as a group.
"As always please follow Government advice on self-isolating and social distancing and keep washing your hands frequently."
