The volunteering landscape is changing rapidly as organisations develop ways for individuals to safely help others in their communities. Initiatives are being developed at UK, Scottish and local levels – we will include links below to initiatives as we hear about them. Volunteer Scotland will also be updating their website regularly.
We are now in phase 1 of lockdown easing. Remote working remains the default for those who can. There is some relaxation on guidance for different sectors providing that appropriate risk assessments, hygiene and physical distancing measures are in place.
For the majority of voluntary organisations planning should begin for future phases, and volunteers should continue to stay at home wherever possible and strictly limit face-to-face contact.
