Highland Council appeals to employees to volunteer skills to combat COVID-19 threat

By Hector MacKenzie

Highland Council has issued an appeal for employees who are fit and healthy to apply to volunteer their skills and experience to help in the delivery of priority and statutory services during the coronavirus crisis.

The local authority, one of the region's biggest employers, is no longer operating under ‘business as usual’ as it focuses on efforts to protect vulnerable people, deliver care and support core services ahead of non-essential work.

Highland Council, along with High Life Highland, Eden Court and other partners, are continuing to engage with the community to assist in the coordination of support to vulnerable people across the region.

Staff at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness are also being invited to support the delivery of Highland Council's resilience response to the crisis.
