The Scottish Government has launched the ‘Scotland Cares’ campaign to encourage people to volunteer during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
There a lot of ways you can help, whether you’re providing practical or emotional support, or helping in your local community. If you’re interested in volunteering in the NHS and want to find out more, visit Ready Scotland.
Only those who are aged 18 or over, not self-isolating and are not in any risk categories may volunteer. Unsure if you can help? Please check the latest advice at NHS Inform. You’ll find information and guidance about when to self-isolate and if you are fit to volunteer.
You may also find volunteering opportunities on your local NHSScotland Health Board website.
Opportunities for volunteering will vary throughout the coming weeks and months. Please don’t be discouraged if suitable roles aren’t available now, as this may change over time.
