In response to the recent government announcement about lockdown, Voluntary Support North Surrey is registering a pool of potential volunteers to support the local community in the next few weeks/months.

The support needed is likely to be temporary and co-ordinated but may include activities such as:

  • providing practical support to older people and other vulnerable groups affected by covid 19 e.g. shopping
  • checking in with people over the phone
  • supporting the running of foodbanks and community meal providers
  • driving - to transport people and supplies
  • IT advice for voluntary organisations and individuals about communicating online
  • Administrative support - helping organisations to change the way they deliver services and contact people in need 

When registering, it would also be helpful to state:

1. your age and any underlying health conditions (so we can match you with a suitable activity)

2. whether you hold a current driving licence and have access to a car

3. whether you have a current DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check and if so, with which organisation or if you are currently employed, could your Employer provide a character reference.

4. Which area you are prepared to volunteer in.

Once you have registered we will connect you with a local support group that are looking for volunteers. 

Skills

Skills needed will vary depending on the role and activity.
