Share this article

Volunteering is at the heart of our communities and particularly at this time we have seen
our altruism and generosity come to the fore. In order to support the volunteer movement
Volunteer Now been working closely with Government Departments, Trusts and voluntary
organisations throughout NI to provide support and guidance at this difficult

Volunteer Now has:
• Launched #HelpEachOther giving people an opportunity to register their interest in
volunteering to support those who need it most. Volunteers can register
at: https://bit.ly/3anbmr0 where they will receive dedicated COVID-19 roles and
receive regular contact from Volunteer Now.

• Organisations wishing to recruit volunteers to support their efforts can register their
volunteering opportunities on our website:
https://www.volunteernow.co.uk/volunteer-management/ our team are on hand to
support you upload your opportunities and navigate the system. It’s a fantastic
volunteer management system enabling you to tailor registration forms, assign shifts
and communicate with volunteers. If you need support please email:

• For those organisations who have resources that could possibly be used such as
teams of staff/volunteers, buildings, vehicles, equipment etc then we would be
interested in hearing about it. Please email: antje.otto@volunteernow.co.uk

• Good practice guidance for volunteers, organisations and those undertaking informal
volunteering in order to support everyone as they provide essential support keeping
in mind the need to keep themselves and those they support safe. We are very
conscious of the scams and potential for abuse that can occur for both those being
supported and those supporting.

Here is the link to our new COIVD-19 information sheets:

There are 3 separate sheets as we recognise that there are 3 audiences at the
* organisations that involve volunteers in COVID-19 related roles;
* volunteers in organisations carrying out COVID-19 related roles;
* informal volunteers that are carrying out COVID-19 related activities without
the support of an organisation.
