3. Crisis Support Team - In addition to the proactive calls the Crisis Support Team will be making, they will be available to provide support those residents who are most in need. The Crisis Support Team will be promoted as follows:

“For vulnerable residents in crisis as a result of Covid-19. For those unable to access shopping essentials, obtain crucial medication or are in need of urgent temporary support as a result of Covid-19. We can make sure that you get the help you need during this period by putting you in touch community groups in your area, connecting you with online support and voluntary organisations, provide advice and guidance as well as providing practical support if needed. So if you need help with accessing food and medication or if you are isolated and feeling alone or anxious – give is a call.

This service is specifically aimed at supporting vulnerable citizens. Please do not use the service unless you are in crisis as your call will be redirected to Contact OneVale on 01446 700111.”

The telephone number for the Crisis Support Team is 01446 729592 and this line will be staffed from Friday 0800-1700 Monday to Friday and outside of these times calls will be diverted to the emergency out of hours line.

4. Vale HeroesMany residents are looking for advice on accessing support services in their local area to help them and their families at the current time. There has also been a significant interest from the public wishing to volunteer their time to support others. Businesses in the Vale are also changing their way of working to offer services in different ways.

A new part of the Council’s website has been launched www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/ValeHeroes. This provides a searchable database of the organisations, community groups and businesses that we are aware of that can provide a range of different support services. The site also indicates if a group is looking for new volunteers so people can identify opportunities to volunteer to support others. This will be updated on a daily basis with the latest information and we are grateful to GVS for their assistance in identifying the first range of organisations and groups on the site.

Vale Heroes also provides guidance and information on setting up new community groups and also how to volunteer safely, specifically considering the government and Public Health Wales guidance. New groups or businesses can also submit information about themselves via the website.
