Information to help volunteers take part in RESCUE.

Volunteer pack

Our Old information pack that gives background and general information on RESCUE is here – we hope to update this in the future. Please bear in mind that while the information stands, our contact details have changed.

If you would like to form your own clean up team, the below sections are particularly useful for new groups:

Section 2: how to take part in RESCUE and

Section 3: considerations for your event.


The RESCUE steering group provides a poster for groups to advertise their local event on – please contact us and we will send you a pdf of the latest poster.

Please use this as it includes details of our sponsors and supporters.


Find us on Facebook – @reading.rescue  or on Twitter – @ReadingRESCUE.

General advice

Page 30 in our volunteer pack gives some information for when contacting the press to publicise your event.

In addition, RVA has published some guidlines on how to effectively contact the press about community events.  Read the article here.
