Updated government volunteering guidance 22 January 2021
GOV.UK guidance for England on how volunteering can be done safely and effectively during the pandemic has been updated in line with the national lockdown restrictions. This includes guidance for formal and informal volunteers, and for volunteer-involving organisations and groups.
Anyone can volunteer during the coronavirus pandemic. However, there are restrictions on where and how volunteer roles can be completed.
People must volunteer from home unless it is not reasonably possible to do so. If you are ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ (high risk from coronavirus) you should only volunteer from home.
