COVID-19 Advice about volunteering

Volunteers are a vital part of the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

If you would like to volunteer, please register your interest by completing the form on the Buckinghamshire Council website. If you are looking to join a local group providing support to vulnerable people in your local community, visit the Buckinghamshire Council website for more information.

The NHS also urgently needs volunteer responders to work in community roles – sign up here. To volunteer specifically in hospitals please see information further down this page.

If you would like one-to-one advice (whether you are a volunteer or recruiting or supporting volunteers), you can contact us on volunteering@communityimpactbucks.org.uk.  Other support for charities, voluntary and community groups, can be found here.

Urgent: call for volunteers to work with NHS in hospitals

They need people in the non-Covid-19 areas of the hospitals to do non-medical tasks, such as helping people find their way, feeding those who need help to eat, essential office functions etc.
