Covid-19 Community Volunteering Mailing List


We have been overwhelmed by the response from people wishing to help during this difficult time. Over 3,000 of you have expressed an interest in volunteering, and although that is incredible, we know that there are simply not enough opportunities to meet this demand and we cannot guarantee a volunteer role for everyone.

Our team is working hard to support voluntary and community groups. We are helping them to assess what their needs are and supporting them to recruit and manage volunteers safely. Please bear with us as we work through this process and prioritise supporting organisations at this time. 

You can sign-up below to join our Covid-19 Community Volunteer mailing list and keep up-to-date with current volunteering opportunities in the city of Manchester. If you live in another area of Greater Manchester you may wish to visit the Volunteering GM website to find more local opportunities.

Have you considered joining your local Covid-19 mutual aid/community response group? A mutual aid group is a group of local people who organise informally to support one another and the needs of their local community. Click here to find a list of all the mutual aid groups in the UK, just search the map to find a group in your local area and follow the link to join.

We've put together a guide with advice to help anyone who wishes to volunteer to do so safely, please take the time to read it before commtiing to any volunteering. You can download it here and a link will also be sent to you when you sign up to the mailing list.

Thank you for your support and your willingness to help. We will get through this by working together.

You can view and apply for all active volunteer roles here and sign up for the mailing list below to recieve weekly updates on new opportunities.
