Clubs across the four provinces are creating plenty of #PositiveEnergy and offering their services to those most in need at the moment. If your club is volunteering in the community you should be aware of the government guidelines in place in your area.
The Department of Rural and Community Development have published a COVID-19 Communication Pack For Communities.
For the Republic of Ireland communications pack, go to https://www.gov.ie/en/collection/6dd895-covid-19-communication-pack-for-communities/
For Northern Ireland Executive volunteering supports go to https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/help-fightback-against-covid-19
Below are three documents which may be of use to clubs who are coordinating volunteer activities for rugby clubs to help their communities.
The Government of Ireland have also launched “The Community Call’ – a major initiative that links local and national Government with the community and voluntary sectors. The purpose of the Community Call is to coordinate community activity, direct community assistance to where it is needed, and marshal the volunteering energy of the country.
Clubs already active in combatting the effects of COVID-19 can get more information on the national initiative by clicking on this link.
