New Volunteer Pack
6th May 2020

We’ve created an information pack for volunteer groups, to help them support their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’ve run the Volunteer Service in Somerset for many years, and have lots of experience of supporting groups and volunteers.

Most recently, we’ve had the privilege of supporting lots local COVID-19 support groups, many of whom have shared their ways of working with us. This has given us valuable insight into what works well, and helped us to identify the areas in which groups most often need support.

Our Volunteer Pack captures all of this key information in one handy place! It covers a range of useful topics, from recruiting and supporting volunteers to safeguarding and data protection, plus practical tips for activities that are commonly undertaken by volunteers, such as dog walking, buying groceries and collecting prescriptions.
