What you can do to support your community during COVID-19
During these challenging times, it’s crucial to support those in your community. Here are some practical ways to do so.

  • Volunteers from across Warwickshire are needed to help support Warwickshire County Council’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic as part of a national testing programme. You can register your interest here.

  • Have a phone conversation - we are currently looking for volunteers who can make befriending calls to people who are shielding. Click here to register.

  • Community Volunteers - we are also working alongside local mutual aid groups to refer volunteers who are happy to run errands such as prescription collection and grocery shopping for people needing to isolate. Click here to register.

  • Give blood or plasma - if you are in good health, giving blood is a great way to support your community during this time of need. Register here.

  • Food banks - Food bank donations are needed more than ever before in the UK. Find your nearest Food bank.

COVID-19: Ideas for independent volunteering
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people wishing to support others in their neighbourhood during this time of national crisis. We are finding that in some areas groups that have set up to support people have enough volunteers and many existing charities are suspending their services due to the risks of infection.

If you are finding it difficult to identify a volunteering role with an established group then we have pulled together some ideas for volunteering that you can do independently to make a positive difference to people who are struggling right now. We know that there is a lot of unmet need out there that the established charities aren’t able to get to. Please take a look at these ideas to see if you can find something that will work for you.
