City-wide volunteer programme launched to support vulnerable people.
Leeds United are encouraging anyone who can to register with the Community Care Volunteering programme to help support the most vulnerable people in our local community during the coronavirus pandemic.
This is a city-wide volunteer programme, that has been coordinated by Voluntary Action Leeds, Leeds City Council and a range of charities across Leeds, to support those who are at high risk and people who have been heavily impacted by COVID-19.
There has been an incredible response to the scheme so far, with thousands of people coming forwards to show their support and help where they are able to but we need your help to spread the word about the programme even further, to supporters who could be a potential volunteer and to find those vulnerable people who require extra support.
A coordinated effort is important to ensure that the most vulnerable people receive help and that all volunteers and recipients of support are safe in the process. Anyone who is healthy, low risk and over 16 years of age can sign-up on the Doing Good Leeds website by completing the registration form here.
This programme has been designed so that people can sign-up to volunteer in a range of different roles, depending on availability and preference. Volunteers can sign-up to offer practical support for vulnerable people receiving care services (such as shopping deliveries, preparing meals, making check-in phone calls) or you can register as an informal volunteer to help within their own neighbourhood in more general ways.
