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.

Are you helping with prescription deliveries?

Many groups and organisations in the city have come together to help those in need during this crisis. Collecting prescriptions from the pharmacy for those unable to leave their homes is one area that has been of great benefit to those in isolation. Plymouth Good Neighbours Scheme have compiled an easy to follow best practice guide to help with data compliance and the safety of both volunteers, and those requiring this service.

Covid-19 “Tell Us” Poster

A keyboard warrior isn’t going to help anyone!

As the next phase of relaxation of the lock-down rules come in and commercial premises start to re-open we want to encourage everyone to work together to keep us all safe.

Too many people nowadays are quick to judge & love nothing more than to call people out for doing the wrong thing. We want to see concerns raised directly to business owners rather than via social media.

Feel free to download and display our “Don’t tweet, tell us” poster to display in your premises.
