The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. Full guidance on staying at home and away from others can be found on gov.uk
The Government has also put together new guidance on how the public can support others in their local community safely. This includes advice on: who is able help, what people can do and volunteering.
If you are able and want to volunteer in the response to Covid-19 we have put together a list of a range of ways you can:
Check in on friends/neighbours/family who may be more vulnerable
Stay in touch by phone or other digital media. Make sure they are able to keep in touch, and can access help if they need it.
NHS Volunteer Responders
Your NHS needs you! The NHS and The Royal Vountary Service have set up NHS Volunteer Responders which has already seen hundreds of thousands across the country sign up.
Protect your loved ones and protect the nation, volunteer to help those that are most vulnerable to the effects of coronavirus (COVID-19) and need to stay at home. Join the army of NHS volunteers today.

The need for blood never stops. The government have classed giving blood as ‘essential travel’ with extra safety measures put in place for the public and staff donating their time, blood and platelets.
