Going out of the house to volunteer is still permitted. The government classes ‘essential’ volunteering activities as:
- Delivering food
- Helping people with their medical needs, such as picking up prescriptions
- Providing essential care to vulnerable people including through food banks, homeless services and blood donation sessions
Croydon Council are working with Croydon Voluntary Action to coordinate volunteers across the borough. These volunteers will be supporting Croydon Council’s work to deliver food and essential goods to those in Croydon who were part of the 1.5 million high-risk people who must be shielded over the next 12 weeks.
