CAMERA Emergency Volunteering Team Training Session

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many events listed on this website are likely to be cancelled. Please contact specific event organisers for up to date information on whether or not the event will go ahead.

Essential training for anyone who wants to take part as an Emergency Response and Recovery Volunteer in Camden or Hammersmith & Fulham.
Could you help in Camden or Hammersmith & Fulham in the event of an emergency?
CAMERA Emergency Volunteering Programme has officially launched in Camden and Hammersmith & Fulham and we are now looking for people who would be able to be trained to respond in the event of an emergency.
The experience of the Grenfell tragedy and the Chalcots Estate evacuation showed that there was a surplus of people with useful skills and experience, e.g. counselling, who offered to volunteer but were not allowed to help as they were not known by the local authority dealing with the situation.
The CAMERA response and recovery volunteer team aims to give an opportunity for local people to help in situations such as these.
Volunteering roles include: Emergency Centre Assistants, Emergency Centre Team Leaders, Donation Assistants and Entertainers
Useful skills include: Language Skills, First Aid or other healthcare skills, Counselling, Youth Work and any other skills that enable volunteers to work with local people e.g. mental health
