With people returning to work and more charities able to re-open, Volunteer Centre Kensington and Chelsea is continuing to register local people who want to help new and existing local services responding to the pandemic, as well as supporting people to self-organise and support each other.
Anything you can do to make things a little less stressful for others during the Coronavirus outbreak can go a long way, especially for those in high-risk groups. You can register your availability here.
Roles that are offered to registered people will be subject to appropriate safeguarding checks by the community organisations recruiting them, to protect both volunteers and the vulnerable people they will be supporting. The community organisations are responsible for training, managing and keeping you safe while you are volunteering with them.
Whether you choose to register your interest in supporting a community organisation, to offer help to your neighbours informally, or both, it's essential that you keep safe and well, and that the safety and wellbeing of others is ensured.
Thank you to all those who have given, and are continuing to give, their time to help others during this unprecedented period of time.
