NHS Volunteer Responders Programme


The latest from the official website:

NHS Volunteer Responders are here to help people in England to stay safe during coronavirus (COVID-19). We have been set up by NHS England and NHS Improvement, working with Royal Voluntary Service and the GoodSAM app. Our amazing team of NHS Volunteer Responders have now completed more than 1.5 million tasks.

Our volunteers help people:

  • avoid busy places by collecting their shopping, medicines and other important items
  • have regular contact with other people by making regular friendly phone calls
  • get to medical appointments by giving lifts.

Support during COVID-19

This service is part of the UK Government’s response to COVID-19 and will continue until at least March 2021.

People who can use this service

We can help anyone who lives in England and who needs to self-isolate for any reason. We can also help people who choose to stay at home as much as possible because they are cautious about going out during the coronavirus outbreak.
