I want to help
Your communities are strong and resilient and there are simple things you can do to help them continue to thrive:

 

Thank you Swindon for a phenomenal response – we are currently closing the registration form for new volunteers whilst we manage and match the 500+ who have already registered. If you want to volunteer and haven’t registered already through Compassionate Swindon there is now the opportunity to join the national NHS led ‘Volunteer Responder’ scheme who will be matching volunteers with the 1.5 million people who are specifically being asked to shield themselves due to underlying health conditions. Thank you for your compassion.

Sign up to the NHS led Volunteer Responder scheme here – https://www.goodsamapp.org/NHS

 

Thank you to all the volunteers who have already registered – we are all working hard behind the scenes to get things in place to get you started and to keep you safe. The next step will be a phone call to each of you from a member of the Live Well team next week to run through some key questions with you

 

Please note that depending on the nature of the volunteering you may need a current (within the last 2 years) DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check or will need to provide photo ID, proof of address and one referee we can telephone.

We ask for your email address, phone number, name and postcode and we will store this data specifically for the volunteer response to Coronavirus. You can indicate whether you would like us to store your email for ongoing communication purposes at the end of the form.

 

Volunteering Animations

To help you with your volunteering we would recommend you watch the following collection of short animations created by North Tyneside VODA to support volunteering during the COVID-19 emergency.

 

If you are unable to support the campaign through volunteering please consider a donation to the Swindon & Wiltshire Response Fund which will see all funds raised given to help voluntary groups across the county deal with effects of the pandemic.
