Volunteer roles

There are various roles that are part of the NHS Volunteer Responders programme. All volunteer roles have been developed to ensure that volunteers can help local communities wherever they can during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Steward Volunteers, Community Response Volunteers and Community Response Plus Volunteers are the roles most needed, especially during the COVID-19 recovery period. This can include shopping for food and essentials and collecting and delivering prescriptions.
