Volunteering Update

26 May 2020

Volunteering to help during the coronavirus crisis

We have been overwhelmed and humbled by the numbers of people who have come forward to offer their help to support vulnerable people in our communities.  To date we have received 1,200 offers of help across our areas – referring around 500 people to existing community groups and launching our very own ‘Community First Delivers’ Volunteers, where we currently have 150.

Due to the large number of people volunteering to help during the current crisis Community First is no longer taking on new volunteers.  If the situation changes and we need more volunteers we will open up registration.

You can still apply to volunteer with the many organisations listed on our website, although there may be a delay in responding.
