Government issue guidance on Volunteering

Volunteering will be crucial in the response to coronavirus and people have not been stopped from doing this.

However, volunteering that requires going out of the house is now only permitted in certain circumstances. If you are well and are not at risk from coronavirus you can undertake essential activities including:

Delivering food

Helping people with their medical needs, such as picking up prescriptions

Providing essential care or to help a vulnerable person or person(s), including through essential public and voluntary services, such as food banks, homeless services, and blood donation sessions

Voluntary organisations are supporting people across the UK in this time of high need, providing practical, emotional and social support.

You can find local volunteering opportunities by visiting Do-IT, Volunteering Matters, or Reach Volunteering.

You could approach your local volunteer centre, or find your local member of the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action.
