Updated Guidance to Volunteering Safely in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic

05-Feb-2021


Following the news of the new national lockdown, the Government has updated its guidance on how to help safely including staying safe as a volunteer.

There are different ways to volunteer during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and given the most important thing we can do to fight COVID-19 is to follow social distancing guidance to help control the virus and save lives; where people choose to provide their much needed skills, expertise and their time would depend on the type of activities they would want to do - and the risks associated with that.

Following on from MVA’s previous article, the UK Government has updated its guidance on how to help safely, which includes staying safe as a volunteer.

National organisation NAVCA have created an updated volunteering decision tree which should be used in conjunction with the updated Government guidance.

There is also additional information available at NCVO’s Knowhow Coronavirus Volunteers webpages.

Further information can be found on the Government website.
