Covid-19: guidance and advice for voluntary groups and volunteers

Community Impact Bucks is the local support and development agency for charities, voluntary and community groups, and social enterprises in Buckinghamshire. An independent charity, we are the Volunteer Centre, the Council for Voluntary Service, and the Rural Community Council for Buckinghamshire.

We have brought together a range of advice and guidance to support the voluntary sector in its response to COVID-19, and will update this regularly. We are in dialogue with our local partners and national voluntary sector bodies and are sharing information, knowledge, and ideas as changes unfold.

If you are looking to volunteer, or are running a charity or community group, we are here to help.

Our Community Projects are currently suspended in line with COVID-19 social distancing measures. We are considering how we could support our clients in other ways.

Heart of Bucks has launched an appeal to raise funds to support people and charities in Buckinghamshire who are most affected and vulnerable at this time of crisis. For further information and the Total Giving link to donate, go to Bucks Coronavirus Response Appeal .

We are also sending out regular alerts featuring the latest COVID-19 news which is of particular relevance to charities, community groups and volunteers in Buckinghamshire. Past COVID-19 Briefings can be viewed below; if you would like to receive these regular briefings, sign up to Community Impact Bucks’ free membership scheme here.
