NHS Volunteer Responders

Listique’s Recommendation

We are currently living through the real-life nightmare of the COVID-19 pandemic. But through the stress of trying to keep ourselves and our families safe, we often forget the people who need our help the most: the NHS. We highly recommend that you respond to the NHS’ call for volunteers, it will be one of the best things you will ever do for other people, for the country, for the world. Because there really is no better feeling than helping others and making a difference when it’s needed the most. Sign up to one of the tasks listed. Once you have registered and checks are completed you will be sent a log-in to the GoodSAM Responder app. You can switch the app to ‘on duty’, by which you will then be able to see live and local volunteer tasks to choose from. Tasks can include looking after a vulnerable person. This is an amazing programme, which will allow volunteers to support those most at risk from COVID-19, the NHS workers.

About NHS Volunteer Responders

NHS Volunteer responders is calling for fit and healthy volunteers, with no symptoms and who are over the age of 18 to help out. Those who are within higher-risk groups such as individuals over the age of 70 or with underlying health conditions, can help out by offering support by phone. This is a highly important call for volunteers, that could be of major help to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Britain. However, the safety of all volunteers is a number one priority, with the majority of tasks being carried out mindful of social distancing. Volunteers will also all receive a ‘getting started pack’, and will be allowed to pause volunteering if they become unwell. Patient transport drivers will need to produce an enhanced DBS check, and will have access to guidance on how to carry out the role in a safe way. They will also be provided with a ‘getting started pack’.
