Response to Coronavirus  
 
Over the last week or so, we have been talking a lot about how we can support our beneficiaries. Our first priority is ensuring the health and safety of all our staff, volunteers, partners and the communities that they interact with. Consequently, we have also cancelled all our outreach events, organisation advice sessions and volunteer advice sessions until further notice

As our team continues to work from home, the best way to reach us is by:
Phone: 0300 365 9960
Email: enquiry@volunteeringbarnet.org.uk
 
We will continue to bring you the latest updates and information in the weeks ahead.
 
 
There is lots of noise and misinformation out there, and it can feel overwhelming at times, to find accurate updates and advice, we recommend visiting Coronavirus (COVID-19): UK government response and NHS websites.
 
Useful Resources 
 
NCVO has published information to help organisations decide what actions they may need to take in light of the spread of COVID-19.
 
 
Small Charities Coalition is emphasizing the importance of safeguarding staff or volunteers. It is continuing to update its website with information and resources for small charities and organisations. 
 
 
Institute of Fundraising has recommended that as much as possible, charities should try to avoid rushed or hasty decisions and to document decision-making along the way, plus ensuring trustees are involved where appropriate. 
 
Charity Sector's Response 
 
 
Guide your Volunteers
 
Several local and national relief efforts are being initiated by individuals and community groups. If you are receiving queries from enthusiastic volunteers offering to help, please share the below information and advice. Remind your volunteers to strictly follow instructions and guidelines set out by the Government and NHS.
 
 
  • Get involved in the local community action plan by Onestonegrove
 
  • Donate to a charity who are already helping those in need of extra support such as #helpinghands
 
  • Informal or micro volunteering. Call or Skype a relative or friend who you know is on their own or maybe worried.
 
 
All our services are active and operating as usual. If you need any support or information, reach us between 10am - 4pm, from Monday to Friday.
