Local group resources

Are you thinking about setting up a new voluntary organisation, community group or looking to volunteer? Is your aim to bring about change or provide a service for the benefit of your community?

You’ll find lots of great info here to help you think through some of the key issues relating to volunteering or starting a voluntary sector organisation in Plymouth.

It is important that you must follow government guidelines including:

  • Do not volunteer if you have symptoms or are in a vulnerable category
  • Stay 2m away from anyone you do not live with at all times
  • Regularly wash your hands with soapy water for at least 20 seconds

Please refer to the government guidelines on how to help safely for further guidance on keeping yourself and others safe.

Vaccination Centre Induction & Volunteer Agreement


In the space of just 4 weeks over 2000 citizens have come forward to volunteer as Stewards for the vaccination program that is now up and running. Our partners RE:ACT are currently loading all volunteers through their rostering system and we are suspending recruitment until we are aware of any future needs. What we want to minimise is the numbers of volunteers signing up and being unable to actually book a shift. As soon as we are sure there is a need to increase the numbers of volunteers we will begin recruitment again.
