Strong communities place the least demand on public services – Telford and Wrekin
Posted on 9th March, 2020
As a Co-operative Council, we are committed to working in partnership with our local communities to deliver the best we can with our collective resources and volunteering is a key element of this. For many years now we have been working with residents to build their skills and confidence to become active participants within their communities, with our dedicated team developing a range of volunteering schemes within the Council and providing support externally to those that need it too.
Our approach has been to target our resources at areas in the greatest need of support, working more effectively with the resources and assets that are already in place. We now have over 1,500 volunteers supporting council services, contributing in many ways.
