We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action (DVVA) vision is a socially just, healthy and sustainable Dundee that is culturally diverse where people's voices are heard and power and decision-making is equally shared.
As of 1 October 2019, Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action (DVVA) has brought together Dundee Voluntary Action and Volunteer Dundee into one organisation, combining our expertise in the following areas:
• Healthcare and Wellbeing – working together to provide a better, more integrated adult health and social care service;
• Community Planning and Representation – providing strong and cohesive representation of the third sector with clear links to Community Planning Partnerships;
• Organisational Support and Development – providing a single point of access for support and advice for the third sector in the local area;
• Volunteering – working with individuals, communities and organisations to involve, inspire and engage people in volunteering and make Dundee a better place.
DVVA together with Dundee Social Enterprise Network forms Dundee’s Third Sector Interface.
DVVA in partnership with Dundee City Council is working to support vulnerable people in the community during the current COVID-19 crisis through Community Support Centres across Dundee. As part of this partnership, DVVA is recruiting community response volunteers.
