Coronavirus community support

Help for voluntary and community groups

As groups are set up and grow, it is important to make sure support activities are carried out safely to keep volunteers and others safe.

The Government has published guidance to help organisations and groups understand how to safely and effectively involve volunteers during the pandemic. Read the guidance.

You will also need to consider safeguarding issues, assessing risks and keeping people’s details and money safe. Find out more on Support Staffordshire's website. Support Staffordshire also has some useful video resources.
