Why can’t Central Coast Council set up a roster of volunteers willing to contribute their time to community support measures in this difficult time?
In the UK, the response to such a request by the government was overwhelming, and I know that Australians would respond just as enthusiastically, if the opportunity was offered to them.
It would only need an online questionnaire, publicised on the Council website and by Central Coast Newspapers, with categories of assistance that people could offer, and a roster of participants could then be drawn up by Council and accessed by organisations and individuals needing help.
If we are on a wartime footing, as the PM is fond of telling us, let’s mobilise all our resources, as we did in the 1940s, and come through this crisis stronger than before.
