Good Practice Guidance
It is important to remember that you need to keep yourself, those who you support and the organisations you volunteer with safe. Volunteer Now have published information sheets for more guidance when involving volunteers and volunteering during the Coronavirus crisis. They are listed below.
Keeping Adults Safe: See Something, Say Something – This session is suitable for staff and volunteers who may have some interface with adults at risk of harm but who do not work closely with them, to introduce them to adult safeguarding issues. *This is a Key Course for volunteers taking part in our #HelpEachOther Campaign and it is also suitable for the general public who may have concerns about their family, friends or neighbours. Register here.
Involving Volunteers in Response to COVID-19 (Webinar) – Volunteer Now has partnered with NICVA to deliver this essential learning on how to put best practice in place for involving volunteers safely in such challenging times. Covid-19 has highlighted across the world how important volunteering is. Volunteers are bringing amazing support to those ‘most at risk’ in our communities and more and more people are stepping up in terms of getting involved and offering help. However we need to ensure safe methods and systems to protect everyone. Click here to view the webinar (recorded on 9 April 2020).
