Ways you can help

We're in this TOGether.

All of us are being affected in profound ways. Here are just a few ways to help if you have the time and opportunity. We'll keep adding and updating. 

We hope this finds you all safe and well.

NHS Volunteering:

Currently on hold due to the incredible national response

Roles:

  • Community Response - collecting shopping, medication and other supplies and delivering them for those in need.
  • Patient Transport - transporting patients who are declared fit back to their homes
  • NHS Transport - transporting equipment and supplies between NHS sites
  • Check in & Chat - short phone calls with those at risk of loneliness. Shields those in need and takes strain off the NHS.

Red Cross:

Sign up to be a reserve volunteer. Help the community during the crisis (work unspecified on site)

NCVO:

With the rapid development of coronavirus, volunteering has become even more crucial to our communities. Here’s how you can help with volunteering assistance relating to coronavirus.

VAS (Sheffield based):

  • Similar to NHS work, just locally focused in Sheffield
  • Help with basic errands, such as food shopping
  • Connecting people
  • Providing emotional support and social contact

Trussel Trust:

  • Volunteer to work at local food banks: sorting donations, packing boxes and making deliveries
  • Provide links to find your local food banks, where you can volunteer
  • Food banks help those on furlough, but are at risk due to high proportion of older volunteers

    Community Care Volunteering (Leeds based):

    Volunteers can offer practical help for the vulnerable: shopping deliveries, meal prep, making check in calls, etc. Can help the neighbourhood in more general ways too.

    Acorn

    • Volunteers help those in the community who need shopping, prescription, post or anything else
    • Many of local centres across the UK, including Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds
    • Can also donate to their cause
