The Scottish Government is launching a national campaign in a bid to recruit an army of volunteers to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Volunteers could be asked to support the NHS, other public services and established charities, and will be matched to the needs of their local community.

A new campaign is launched, bringing together volunteers with the health and care sectors.

You can only volunteer to carry out tasks which involve leaving your home, once a day, if you are not required to be isolating and are not in any risk categories -Ā although you can still help even if you need to stay at home by signing up to provide telephone support. This way you can help keep in contact and provide reassurance to those in need.

You can volunteer through theĀ Ready Scotland website.
