⚠️ Coronavirus: How you can help older people in Staffordshire
Lots of people have been getting in contact recently to offer help and support during the COVID-19 outbreak. We're working with Support Staffordshire to coordinate how people can volunteer or support their local community.
We rely on volunteers to help us offer vital services in the local community.
Would you like to lend a hand?
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.
Who can volunteer?
Almost anyone can be a volunteer - young or old! We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.
How much time do I need to give?
It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.
