Volunteer Edinburgh have constantly updating advice for people trying to help out during the pandemic. https://voled.in/covid
Being a good neighbour is the best thing that anyone can do right now. Provided you or anyone in your homes does not have symptoms of corona-virus and you are not one of the people in the risk category you are allowed to leave your house to provide support to someone vulnerable or someone who cannot leave their home.
More than ever local is important. Minimise your travel and think – your building, your street, your neighbours. Social media platforms are a good way of individuals connecting when help is needed but it is also important to do thing safely so that you can feel confident and the person you are helping can feel confident too. Here is how to do that.
Please remember that things will change fast over the coming weeks. It is very likely that the voluntary organisations across Edinburgh who are currently supporting hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people will likely need more volunteering help in the coming weeks so please keep visiting our website www.volunteeredinburgh.org.uk
