Current volunteer resources

We want to support you to get the most out of your volunteering. Your volunteer induction, access to Assemble, and other policies and resources can all be found here. 

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our in-person events and activities were suspended. Some of our in-person events and activities are now restarting. We're phasing a gradual return.

If you’re thinking about restarting an activity, we have a range of information to support you. Contact your local staff member who will book a call with you to work through the right decision. They will guide you through a flowchart that has been co-designed by volunteers and staff. Together you can establish if your activity should return in person just now. Get started on Assemble, your volunteer portal.

Want to keep things virtual? If you already know that you do not want to, or cannot yet return to in person activities, you do not need to do anything further right now.

What is Assemble?

Assemble is our volunteer hub to help you make the most of volunteering. You can see other volunteers in your area, download presentation templates, find out about the latest opportunities to have your say and much more.

Any concerns?

This flowchart and guidance are to help you if you are a volunteer or member of your local group who has any safeguarding concerns. 

You can also contact the designated protection officer on [email protected] or call 0344 225 9853.

Staying connected, safely

Our priority is to support you to start only the in person activities that it's safe to do so. To help you bring people together and collaborate virtually, and to stay in touch with those you volunteer alongside, we've developed resources to support you to stay connected - safely.
