Larkhall & District Volunteer Group
We want to restart services while staying within recommendations to keep everyone safe. This may mean activities need to be offered in a different way to ensure we reach our most isolated members.

About this cause
LDVG is a local charity, offering a number of core services and activities to meet the needs of the local community. All services and activities are run by volunteers and supported by our small staff team. We also provide the local community with access to community transport and our mobility-friendly minibuses are regularly used by our members to attend lunch clubs and walking group trips.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Throughout lockdown, we have made over 500 welfare calls a week, delivered up to 500 weekly free meals, driven for the NHS getting employees to work, and been an active part of the local COVID community group. We now need to look creatively at how we run our activities which may mean restricting numbers, increasing sessions, running activities virtually or taking activities to members.
