From 29 March there will be important changes to the Government guidance on volunteering. This is part of Step B in the ‘Roadmap out of lockdown’.
People will no longer be legally required to stay at home, meaning people will no longer be legally required to undertake their volunteer role from home unless they cannot reasonably do so.
From 29 March forward, people should continue to volunteer from home where possible and they can leave home to volunteer if they are not required to self-isolate for any reason.
As ever, people should follow social distancing guidance while volunteering outside the home, or COVID-secure guidance if in a workplace. While travelling to volunteer or while volunteering, people should follow safer travel guidance.
This is a summary of the changes. For additional information please visit the government website.
