Coronavirus-Covid-19: Hampshire Community Response

Volunteering during COVID19

For people who want to volunteer through the COVID19 crisis please follow the following guidelines:

Register with your local Hampshire volunteer centre    Volunteer centres are there to provide support at a local level for individual volunteers and volunteer involving organisations. They can ensure that voluntary action is mobilized where it is needed and in a safe and, where required, legally compliant way.

If you cannot register with a volunteer centre, informal volunteering is fine for people that you know e.g. neighbours, friends, relatives.  However, when volunteering for strangers, to protect both parties, this may require DBS or identity checking, a service also undertaken by Volunteer Centre/Councils for Voluntary Services.

Hampshire County Council has joined forces with district and borough council partners, alongside the county’s community and voluntary sector, to ensure vulnerable people are able to access the support they need during the coming weeks.
