Who are we?The Castle Covid Support Association (CCSA, whose constitution is here and whose people and policies are listed here) is a non-partisan charitable community group as defined and supported by the Cambridge City Council. Our volunteers will be registered with the Association and be vetted as best as we can. We aim to provide organised and safe help for residents in these unprecedented times.
Is it safe?Data will only be available on a need-to-know basis to members of the Steering Group, to volunteers who need access in order to help our users, and to those who match up other volunteers with users.
Request for HelpAfter filling in a contact form asking for help, you are matched to a volunteer and will get a phone call telling you of the match to prepare you for the approach by the volunteer.
When support is no longer needed, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org so that volunteers can be reassigned. You are free to reject any offers of help or to end the relationship.
