Guidance on safe volunteering during COVID-19
Please note this guidance is current at time of publication. To keep up to date visit the GOV.UK website.
Who can volunteer?
Following national guidance, you can only provide support to people if you fulfil ALL of the conditions below:
• You and everyone in your household are well and do not have Coronavirus symptoms, for example a cough or high temperature. You must self-isolate if you or someone in your household develop symptoms.
• Are under 70.
• Are not pregnant.
• Do not have any long-term health conditions that make you vulnerable to Coronavirus. For information about who is at higher risk of COVID-19, please see the NHS website:
• If you live with someone who is being shielded, you should only volunteer if social distancing can be maintained at all times. We recommend you undertake voluntary roles such as making welfare calls rather than roles that require leaving the house.
