Volunteer Responders has been set up to support the NHS and the social care sector during the COVID-19 pandemic. To do this we need an 'army' of volunteers who can support vulnerable people in England who are at most risk from the virus to stay well. Our doctors, nurses, those working in local authorities and other professionals, will be able to refer people in to NHS Volunteer Responders and be confident that they have been matched with a reliable, named volunteer.
You can help by signing up for one or more of the roles listed below. Once you have registered and checks are complete you will be provided a log-in to the GoodSAM Responder app. Switch the app to 'on duty', and you'll see live and local volunteer tasks to pick from nearby. Please ensure you have a smartphone as you will be unable to receive alerts without the app.
Referrals can be made by Health and local government professionals and pre-approved VCSE
organisations. These are:
