Welcome to the Bath and NE Somerset Third Sector Group (3SG)
March 28th: 3SG is coordinating a local group of charities, residents, students and businesses to come together to create a Compassionate Community
so we can support each other during what could be a difficult time ahead.
Working with the Sustainable Food Partnership we have also listed local food providers
that can support people unable to leave their homes or access an online delivery slot with a supermarket.
Over the past two weeks, more than 2000 people registered as volunteers to offer their support with other members of the community. Our Director James Carlin
has been leading on
recruiting volunteers and coordinating local charities across Bath & North East Somerset.
"On our first day, we recruited 100 people and since then, it has stepped up a gear with hundreds of people joining daily. We are working hard with partners right across BANES to harness the potential of these compassionate people generously offering their time to help others. Thanks to everyone who has tweeted, posted, messaged, called or emailed us over the last few days but please bear with us as we only have a small team.
People interested in volunteering their support to deal with the current COVID-19 situation facing Banes are encouraged to register via a Google Form we have set up here:
3SG will be posting regular updates on its Facebook page
and this website as the situation develops.
