COVID-19 and the Voluntary Workforce
Dear Norfolk Volunteers,
Firstly a massive thank you for stepping up and showing community spirit in these challenging times. It is wonderful to see how people pull together to build resilience and your efforts are recognised and appreciated.
We have created this section of the website to support volunteers to think about safeguarding children and young people as intrinsic to their volunteering tasks – whether it is a making welfare phone call, delivering food packages or walking a dog to help out a neighbour. We will be providing more content and learning opportunities over the coming weeks.
To get you started, we include:
- Some basic information on safeguarding children and how to raise a concerns
- Information on Norfolk Voluntary Services
- Safeguarding Awareness for Volunteers video produced by Waltham Forest Council.
We hope you find this helpful and if there is anything you need please explore our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
