How you can help

The most immediate form of help you can provide to your community during this time is to look out for vulnerable neighbours.

Volunteers are a valuable resource in the response to Covid-19.  If you are volunteering, either formally or just helping out a neighbour, keep yourself safe and follow the latest government guidance.

Coronavirus support campaign

We have created coronavirus campaign materials, including social media images, postcards and posters, which you can promote and share. If you want to support a neighbour who is self-isolating, download our two-sided or one-sided postcard to tell them that you're available. You can also download our community action poster to display. It lists six steps that can make a positive difference in your community.

Want to help through voluntary or paid work?

Voluntary Norfolk is asking people to sign up to volunteer. They are very keen to hear from people who have skills in health and social care roles. More roles will be added as gaps arise. Please note that it may take a short while for someone to contact you, as we have received significant interest from people interested in volunteering. Thank you for your patience.
