Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire are concerned about those under the shielded list. They need your support, to spread the word and help them to identify where the Unmet Need might be and how they can assist in meeting individual vulnerability across Northampton.
As lockdown restrictions ease, people start to return to work and adapt to the new normal, they want individuals and groups to know they are a safe pair hands to offer support to those beyond the shielded.
If individuals living in Northampton feel they need further help and support including having someone to talk to or collect shopping and prescriptions please contact Voluntary Impact on 01604 637522 or email
If communities in Northampton are coming across Unmet Need which as an organisation you cannot deal with or recognise gaps in provision or simply wish to refer individuals on then please do so at or telephone 01604 637522.
The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a light on vulnerability in a way previously never seen. The truth is though that vulnerability has always been there, and has been there for some time. C19 has just brought this into a sharper focus.
As a volunteer bureau they can match volunteers to Unmet Need and supply volunteers if your organisations require more. They call it the Movement for Unmet Need.
