Some useful advice from Canine and Feline Sector Support Group

Community Action: MK

An extract from Community Action: MK's role statement in response to Corvid-19

Community Action: MK believes that our role is to provide the strategic support and coordination of groups across Milton Keynes to enable them to provide safe and well organised support at neighbourhood level.

Voluntary groups in Milton Keynes have existing expertise and systems in place to provide on the ground support to those in the community that are most vulnerable. Harnessing this in the most effective way, it will rely on a coordinated response across sectors to ensure we do not duplicate effort, operate safely and ensure all those who need support receive it.

We are not working with individual residents who wish to take individual action in their communities, whilst we understand that this will happen, to ensure safety and managed coordination we are working through existing voluntary and community groups.
