The latest Government volunteer guidance

NCVO guidance on engaging and supporting volunteers during the pandemic

How people can volunteer

If you are feeling well and have not knowingly had contact with anyone with Covid-19 you are able to leave your home to volunteer to provide essential services.

The Government have produced a Safeguarding Factsheet:Community Volunteers during COVID-19 outbreak and Coronavirus:How to help safely that will give you more information.

For groups wanting to find out more about volunteering and keeping people safe check out the 'Information for new groups delivering Covid 19 Support Services' section.
