Advice for people who want to get involved

We are committed to supporting Warwickshire’s communities through the current coronavirus pandemic. 

Warwickshire’s communities are responding brilliantly to the situation, which is testament to the strength and care of the residents of Warwickshire, who themselves are part of the our rich, diverse and resilient voluntary and community sector. 

Large amounts of volunteers are coming forward and communities across the county are setting up support groups to help ensure that the most vulnerable in our communities have the help they need in these unprecedented times. 

To keep everyone safe as communities pull together and support each other, we have pulled together some information that will help individuals to either provide or receive appropriate support. 

Always follow the national advice and guidance - in some cases, volunteering activities as part of the community support effort will fall under the permitted reason to leave your house in order to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. In all cases, the national guidance around social contact should be followed. If in doubt, please seek advice.
