Keeping safe

We continue to urge all volunteers to follow Government guidance on how to volunteer safely. If you are giving or receiving help please take every precaution to ensure your safety and those of others. Your local Council for Voluntary Service will be able to provide further information and support if you’re unsure. If you are receiving help, you should follow the Government’s social distancing and hygiene guidance.

Do not let anyone into your home unless you have confirmation that they are a registered professional or representative of a recognised Voluntary / Community organisation. Be cautious and ask volunteers for proof of ID.

Keep up to date with the latest Government guidance via and if you’re worried you have symptoms, follow the NHS advice which can be found here.
