UPDATE: Restrictions on emails have been lifted

We now have sufficient confidence our systems and servers have not been affected by the recent cyber attack on our ICT provider, Sopra Steria, that we have lifted the block on external emails.

As you would expect, there are a large number of emails that have been quarantine but work is well under way to release them and should be completed by the end of tomorrow (Friday).

Thank you for your patience and support whilst we have worked to safely resolve the situation.    


If you need us urgently, please call us.

Volunteering in emergencies

In emergency situations volunteering can simply be checking on a vulnerable neighbour or even helping them with shopping or moving furniture.


Would you like to do more?

Gloucestershire County Council runs an Accreditation scheme for volunteers which provides organised help in an emergency using trained volunteers (training provided) from local organisations such as:

  • Churches together
  • St. John Ambulance
  • British Red Cross
  • Rotary
  • Royal Voluntary Service
  • Salvation Army

If you already volunteer and would like to get involved in the scheme or learn more about it, please email civilprotectionteam@glosfire.gov.uk.
