Volunteering support during the COVID-19 outbreak

During this exceptional time, we have limited capacity to answer calls.  If you need to contact us, in the first instance, please email us at action@richmondcvs.org.uk.

If you are interested in volunteering in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, please register on our volunteering database and state COVID-19 Support when you set up your personal volunteering profile and/or select the COVID-19 option in your Volunteer Interests.

If you are already registered, you can update your profile to include the above interest.

We are continuing to work with local organisations to assess needs and priorities and this will help to identify and support the mobilisation of individuals who are able to help.

Everybody Needs a Good Neighbour

As we continue working with local organisations and the situation evolves, the community continues to come together with great generosity and kindness to help at grassroots level.

We have compiled a few ideas of helpful things to do and how to ensure it's done safely.

Why volunteer?

“I decided to volunteer to gain new skills and experience and to help rebuild my confidence. I registered online and found it very straightforward – in fact I found so many roles that I felt were really interesting that I did book a 1 to 1 appointment as I wasn’t quite sure which route to follow. In the end I applied for and got two really interesting and different volunteer roles and I’ve never looked back. I have gained amazing experience, new skills and training, I’ve met really interesting people and my confidence has had a huge boost. “

Richmond CVS runs the Volunteer Service for Richmond upon Thames, in partnership with Richmond and Hillcroft Adult and Community College. There are over 700 organisations in the borough that rely on the support of their volunteers.
