We are heading into unprecedented times and there has never been a greater need for communities to pull together and help each other.
As a member of Our Monmouthshire we want to make sure you stay safe, but we also want to make sure we can support each other as a community and protect the most vulnerable.
In response to the Coronavirus, we are already seeing communities and organisations rallying together to find innovative ways to provide support. We envision Our Monmouthshire being a one-stop platform where local people can find the help they need, offer to help others and share their ideas and experiences within their locality and as a county.
There are many ways that you can use Our Monmouthshire to stay connected with your community, find information and help others who may be self-isolating.
Offer to help others
Share ideas and experiences
Add and promote events
Set up project teams

Support others in your community by applying to become a Street Coordinator.
There has never been a greater need for communities to pull together. Everyone in your neighbourhood needs to feel safe and supported, whilst also maintaining good health and wellbeing where possible.
The aim of the Street Coordinator role is to unlock the creativity and compassion within your community. We know there are many vulnerable people in our communities who may be affected by COVID-19, not just in terms of getting ill but in terms of being unable to access services and their support network.
As a Street Coordinator, you can help in two ways:
Act as a key point of contact for people in your community needing help and support.
Coordinate people in your community who can provide help and support.
Used well, this online platform can facilitate the exchange of offers and requests between people in your community, based on the individual skills people have to offer or the specific problems they need to be solved.
Please fill in a short application form if you think you can help.
