COVID-19 Volunteering Support

At Volunteering Kingston, we are taking measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and advice on how you can keep yourself and others safe. We have teamed up with Kingston Council and Kingston Voluntary Action to form ‘Kingston Stronger Together’ to support and coordinate the volunteering efforts across the borough during the current health situation. Throughout the Covid-19 period, volunteers have stepped up to help others and give their time.

 

Get Involved as a Volunteer

If you want to volunteer as part of the response to Covid-19, search on our website for roles.

Volunteering, if it cannot be done from home, is always permitted for people who are not clinically extremely vulnerable (advised to shield).
