The Health Secretary recently called for volunteers to help out with the current crisis for a very wide range of roles. There has been an overwhelming response to this call.
We also urgently need help in our care homes as many of our staff are on sick leave, or self isolating because a family member is ill, or just unable to work because they fall into the high risk category themselves.
We need volunteers with some care experience to join our teams and help us support the elderly and vulnerable people in our care homes.
Volunteers must be 18 or over, and fit and well with no symptoms. Unfortunately, you cannot volunteer in a home where you have a relative or friend who is a resident.
In the first instance, please contact the home where you wish to help.
