There is now a range of NON Covid-19 volunteering opportunities available for ages 18+ (some for 16+) which can include, charity shops, telephone and face to face befriending, driving, some outdoor volunteering, fundraising, remote support, shopping, support in court, sports chats, to name a few.
We also have organisations taking volunteer details for their opportunities ready for when they can involve them again. These can include, court support, prison, hospitals, residential home, youth club, youth work, outdoor, marketing, community safety to name a few.
Whilst we are back in lock down, organisations are still taking volunteer details and putting them through their selection procedures ready for when restrictions are lifted.
Most organisations will reimburse a travel expense. Full training is provided and time commitment is negotiable with the organisation.
Volunteers will go through a selection procedure within an organisation which will include an informal discussion, application form completion, references and if the opportunity requires it, a disclosure and barring check (cost met by organisation)
