Become a Community Care Volunteer to help with COVID-19

Leeds City Council and Voluntary Action-Leeds have organised a volunteering response to the coronavirus crisis, to support people in the community.

Community Care Volunteering is a city-wide volunteer programme operating across Leeds, to ensure systems are in place to care for people and communities during the COVID-19 outbreak. The programme is coordinated by Leeds City Council and Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL) - a registered charity, working all year round to support a thriving voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Leeds.

A coordinated effort is important to ensure that the most vulnerable people receive help and that all volunteers and recipients of support are safe. If you're healthy and low risk, you can sign-up on the Google form below to become a Community Care Volunteer and help others in Leeds.

The programme is designed so that people can sign-up to volunteer in a range of different roles, depending on availability and preference. Volunteers can sign-up to offer practical support for vulnerable people (such as shopping deliveries, preparing meals, making check-in phone calls) or can sign-up as an informal volunteer to help within their own neighbourhood in more general ways.

Once the form below has been completed, our team will be in touch to discuss your role and match you with opportunities to help. Virtual training and guidance will be provided for relevant roles.

Thank you for your support.
