Over the coming months voluntary and public services in Woking will come under increasing pressure - more vulnerable people will need support at a time when organisations have reduced capacity, due to staff and volunteer absence.
The response from Woking residents to support others in their community has been outstanding so far, but a coordinated effort is important to ensure the most vulnerable people get help. If you're healthy and at low-risk, you can sign up here to become a Community Support Volunteer and help others in the Woking Borough
Please fill in your information below, we will collect your contact details and other useful information so we can match the right volunteers with service gaps and people in need. We ask for your email address, phone number, name and postcode, along with some details about the support you are able to offer. We will store this information specifically for the volunteer response for COVID-19, in line with the Volunteer Woking GDPR policy.
Thank you for your help.
What would you be willing to do? This is an initial list and is not exhaustive. We ask that you only choose things you would be willing to do, although we understand your circumstances may change. *
