Volunteer Offers of Help

Volunteer Help

With the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Parish Council appreciate that there are members of the community who will need some additional help, particularly those in the most vulnerable groups that the Government have recommended introducing social distancing measures to reduce social interaction between people.

These include people aged 70 or older (regardless of medical conditions)

And those under 70 with an underlying health condition set out on the Government website (ie anyone instructed to get a flu jab as an adult each year on medical grounds) and those who are pregnant.

We have had a number of volunteers who have kindly come forward and offered to help.

Below is a list of the volunteers, contact numbers and their location in Boreham. If you are vulnerable and need help with shopping etc you can contact your local volunteers direct.

Please note, we have not carried out any checks on the volunteers although some have informed us that they are DBS checked. You should bear this in mind before contacting anyone and make sure that you ask for identification. Unless the volunteer is known to you do not hand over any money until after the goods have been delivered to you and ask for a receipt. Volunteers will not come into your home.


The latest version of this list will be available at the Boreham Parish Council website www.borehamparishcouncil.co.uk or the Facebook page.

Are you interested becoming a Volunteer Police Officer for Essex Police? Come along to a recruitment evening at Essex Police College.
The evening will consist of a series of short presentations about being a Special Constable; the various roles available within the Special Constabulary and the recruitment process. There will be an opportunity after the presentations to chat to the Specials and ask any questions.
Please note this is not a drop in session, you must register on the form below.
The Event takes place on Wednesday 19 February at 6.30pm – Essex Police College, St Margaret’s road, Springfield, Chelmsford, CM2 6DS.

Free parking is available on site at Essex Police College.

Please note booking is essential through the link above.
All attendees are asked to bring photographic ID to the event. Please note that bag searches will be taking place when you arrive.

Could you be the Boreham Special Constable?

Boreham Parish Council have agreed to fund a Special Constable for Boreham, but in the past year we have received no applications.  We would love for Boreham to be benefit from having a Community Special Constable, but it is reliant on people stepping up to volunteer.  All training is provided by Essex Police.  So if you think that you could be this special person in Boreham, please contact Essex Police for more details.  There have been a number of reported local issues coming through social media and it would be great to have a dedicated person in our village to follow these up.
You probably care most about the places where you walk, cycle or drive; where you exercise the dog, go for a jog, let your kids out to play or where you pop to the shops. You might have thought that you don’t see enough “Bobbies on the Beat” in these places? Well, why don’t you volunteer as a Community Special Constable and be that bobby?
We want a Special Constable in every community in Essex. We already have Specials working on local policing and community policing teams and across a number of specialist areas, but Community Special Constables are something new, something different, something that delivers visible policing at a really local level.
The majority of Special Constables will work in our main busy towns and cover large areas, responding to a wide variety of incidents and challenges. A Community Special Constable is more focussed, they dedicate their voluntary service to the area that matters most to them – their town or parish. In return the local council will pay the allowances and expenses of their officers and they’ll have a say in the issues that their local Specials deal with.
Community Special Constables will:
Be integrated into a Community Policing Team
Start and end their duty as close to their community as possible.
Spend the majority of their time within the council area’s neighbourhoods.
Be visible and accessible in local communities on uniformed patrol.
Help address local issues and priorities as informed by the local council and police intelligence-led tasking.
Patrol hot spots identified through intelligence or which have been deemed to be priority areas.
Respond to police-related incidents within the council area.
Engage with local communities and support further recruitment of Specials.
Attend suitable local council meetings where available to do so.
Have regard to the Council’s aims and objectives in their voluntary service.
Community Special Constables will get the same training as regular officers and will have to complete the same accreditation, but once they’ve got independent patrol status then they can really get committed to their local communities.
If you’re looking for breadth to your policing duties then applying as a generic Special Constable is probably best for you, but if you’re looking for depth, if you’re looking to make a dedicated difference to your own area, to problem solve, to build relationship and be recognised as a local peacekeeper then the Community Special Constable route might be best for you.
