Volunteering and coronavirus

As you know, much of our face-to-face volunteering is suspended due to coronavirus to ensure you remain safe and well. Some volunteering roles can be done from the comfort of your own home to continue to support customers remotely. We have restarted some activities where safe to do so, however we are keeping this under review. We will pause activity as required due to events like a local or national lockdown.

Update – 5 November 2020: From 5 November 2020, all face-to-face volunteering activity is paused in England during the national lockdown alongside other local lockdown areas.

We’ll do our best to keep you up to date with our progress with involving volunteers in our work. Find out more about our current opportunities.

If you have any questions, you can reach us at [email protected] or call us on 0303 123 9999 (option 4).

You should follow the latest UK government advice relevant to where you live. Specific advice for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales is available, as local rules may vary. This is very important as the rules are continuing to change and may be different in each nation.
