How you can help volunteering during the Covid-19 outbreak

It has been fantastic to see people and communities in Aberdeen coming together and responding to the impact of COVID-19.

We wanted to give you some information on how you can help out in your local area to help everyone get through this difficult time.

Helping your neighbours, friends and family

We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

During this challenging time, it’s really important that we take care of ourselves and others. You can find out about ways to help and how to do this safely at the following link
