We are so grateful and thankful for the incredible support the public has shown this past week.

There are now a phenomenal 750,000 NHS Volunteer Responders signed up to relieve pressure on the NHS in England by supporting people most at risk to stay safe and well at home.

Our team is now working flat out to process the many thousands of applications we've received, so we can get volunteers up and running as soon as possible. We have now paused recruitment and kindly ask anyone who is still interested in volunteering to wait a few weeks for the application process to reopen.

Please keep an eye on @GoodSamApp and @RoyalVolService for updates.
