We know there are people willing to help out during this time by expressing their interest in volunteering in our community at this time.

We want to make sure this is as safe and coordinated as possible for volunteers and for people receiving support.

We are encouraging people to register here so we can match your skills, interests and experience to the most relevant need. Anyone who registers with us will be able to access free on-line training (such as infection control, safeguarding, health and safety, manual handling, caring values, and food hygiene).

We can also undertake DBS checks for people who may be interested in supporting front line services such as hospitals or children and adults services.

Alternatively as we ask for your postcode in registration, we can connect you to local groups to provide support as and when required, and link you to others in your community.

If you are considering connecting to newly set up schemes, please bear in mind the safeguarding, insurance and safety of yourself and of others who may be vulnerable.

Free online training will be available to those that register.

Kind regards

BAVO team
