Updated to reflect new national lockdown restrictions.
The most important thing you can do to fight coronavirus is to stay alert and safe by maintaining social distancing. This will help control the virus and save lives.
Whether you choose to volunteer will depend on the type of activities you would like to do, and the risks associated with that for you as an individual. We recommend that you check guidance on how to manage the risk of coronavirus before you volunteer. If you volunteer via an organisation you should also contact them for advice on if it is safe for you to volunteer.
When volunteering you should follow health and safety guidance, using safety measures appropriate to the risk.
