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.
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.
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.
People who need care and support in Norfolk are calling on everyone who can to apply for a role in Norfolk’s adult social care sector as we face an unprecedented demand.
If you are unemployed or have spare time, think about whether you could help people in their time of need. If you have worked in care before, now is the time to re-join. If you can help, please apply via Norfolk Care Careers as soon as possible.
Free parking permits are available for health workers and community volunteers who are helping people across Norfolk.
