Coronavirus - Getting the right information

There is a vast amount of incorrect and misleading information about coronavirus being shared across social media and community messaging groups. Please do not share or forward such misinformation.

You can get the most up to date reliable information and guidance regarding coronavirus by regularly checking the government website on https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Whilst the measures being put in place feel like an inconvenience to our lives, the instructions issued by the government are there to save lives and protect the integrity of our NHS. If you do not follow the rules that have been announced, there are penalties.

Please remember your actions do not only affect you, they will affect the lives of others with potentially far-reaching consequences.

Volunteer and serve your community

As active citizens you offer valuable services to your communities. West Midlands Neighbourhood Watch Force Area Association are looking for dedicated individuals to volunteer their time and skills to help establish an active citizens network across the Midlands. There are many ways you can volunteer, such as:
  • engaging with and supporting communities;
  • dealing with partners and stakeholders; or
  • administering the WeAlert app and social media platforms.
By getting involved you are not replacing local volunteer groups that help their communities, but instead you will form part of an extended network that operates across the Midlands. Our public service and third sector partners and stakeholders may request additional help with specific issues in communities, and we shall identify the volunteer(s) best placed to provide help.

Right now, many of our volunteers are already helping the public during these unprecedented times. Having an active citizens network is key to helping communities continue to function and to maintain a civil society.

If you are interested or you represent an organisation that may be interested in getting involved, please contact us via e-mail at enquiries@wmacf.org.uk.
