Approximately 75 NPLQ lifeguards from across five Telford & Wrekin Council swimming pools have been helping to support in many different areas of the council COVID response including rapid testing, vaccination centres, street champions.

Their work includes;-

  • Rapid Testing – welcoming and checking customer bookings, supporting with their registration, taking the LFT (lateral flow test) and recording results.
  • Vaccination Centres – welcoming and monitoring the queue, taking temperatures, sorting out follow up appointments, monitoring customers following their injections.
  • Street Champions – litter picking, reporting COVID breaches, reporting graffiti and fly-tipping.
