Leeds has seen unprecedented numbers of people coming forward to volunteer during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Community Care Volunteer Programme recruited over 8000 volunteers and Leeds Volunteer Centre has reported over 200,000 visits to their volunteer website!
Whilst many amazing people are currently volunteering many more are ready and seeking that ideal volunteer role.
If you require volunteers, please use the Volunteer Centre to get your opportunity out to a wide range of people in Leeds.
We particularly encourage roles that people who are shielding could undertake e.g. telephone befriending services.
