VOLUNTEER

Corona Virus Volunteers

Thank you for coming to the Denby Dale Centre to discover what difference you can make to other peoples lives.  You offer to help is appreciated by everyone.

Opposite here are documents that have been prepared for you, to make sure you are prepared and you have considered ways to protect yourself from infection or harm whilst you are volunteering.

THERE ARE RISKS INVOLVED IN VOLUNTEERING

HOWEVER

THERE ARE BENEFITS TO PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP

We hope you understand the risks and control them to an extremely low level. Whilst we explore the risks together, you may consider the benefits of accepting the risks, by way of improving the quality of life of people who do not have a network of support.

To help you, we have created some training videos, which are on our distance learning page - the link is opposite. There is a Training Declaration to complete to let us know what training you have done.

You may be interested to join us after Corona Virus - our work will continue to help people and you can continue to make a difference if you have the opportunity.  Please let our volunteer supervisor know.
