This guidance has been written to help support and guide the incredible community response to supporting others that has been generated by the onset of Covid-19. It is intended for people wishing to volunteer, current volunteers and volunteer coordinators who are responding to community need during the coronavirus crisis.

It consists of:

• Introduction – what to think about and where to find support
• Volunteering – could I? should I? and how?
• Volunteering options – sources of information and opportunities
• Starting new community action – guidance and top ten tips
• Dos and don’ts – to coordinate well and safely
• Safeguarding guidance – to help keep everyone safe
• Guidance for the beneficiaries – to keep themselves safe
• Managing volunteers and their conduct – to ‘manage’ remotely
• Re-deploying the volunteer workforce – ‘reshaping’ what we do and how

• Financial transactions – preventing abuse, fraud and theft
• Suggested volunteer roles – with helpful detail
• DBS checks reminder – what has and hasn’t changed
• Other useful resources – a selection of useful links
We hope you will find it useful. We will update it as necessary as things change, and in response to your needs. Do let us know how we can help you: [email protected]
