Cancellation of TARA AGM

The TARA committee’s principle concern is the health and wellbeing of our members It is not possible to organise an AGM in a way that would make it compliant with current Government guidance on social distancing and every indication from Government and the NHS suggest that their guidance will be in place for some months. In addition to this a significant number of our members have been advised to not leave their homes for 12 weeks. We have therefore taken the decision to cancel the AGM until Government guidance changes

Covid vaccination recruitment

To deliver the vaccine, the NHS needs to recruit people into hundreds of new roles – both in a paid and a volunteer capacity - you will see advertising for both going out on social media over the next few weeks. Do you know someone that is not currently working for the NHS that would like to be part of this rewarding and significant programme to help recover our community from the COVID-19 pandemic? Maybe they are furloughed, working part time or have recently been made redundant. If they have the drive and the passion to be involved in the COVID vaccination campaign, then the NHS wants to hear from them. Please encourage any of your family or friends who might be interested and fulfil the criteria detailed on the NHS jobs site to contact the local recruitment team via the dedicated COVID-19 vaccine recruitment email: ruh-tr.vaccinationrecruitment@nhs.net

Bath Abbey Survey

Bath Abbey are undertaking a survey into peoples opinions about and experiences of volunteering It will shape the Abbey’s Volunteering Strategy for the next 5 years and can be completed by anyone who does or doesn’t volunteer in BANES at the moment. The results of the survey will be published on their website at some point in 2021, so the findings may be of use to other organisations as well. The link to the survey can be found Here
