It comes after a call for people to help the NHS out by volunteering.

The group is "wishing to support the most vulnerable" during this pandemic, and will help to link anyone who wants to help with organisations which need help.

MVA chief executive Jane Howard said: "The VCS and residents are at the epicentre of Medway’s community response, and we know just how much determination and commitment they are giving daily to help respond within our communities.

"The priority is that everyone remains safe, so all volunteering activities should adhere to the government’s latest guidance and everyone should remain aware of any NHS advice we need to follow.

"MVA is working collaboratively with other agencies and COVID-19 initiatives in Medway, including the Medway Council’s public health community hub and Medway community healthcare, and we are committed to sharing and communicating resources and information wherever possible.
