Royal Voluntary Service has been on the front line during the Coronavirus pandemic
We have supported those most vulnerable to stay safe and well at home while shielding from the virus, ultimately reducing pressure on the NHS.
At the onset of COVID-19, Royal Voluntary Service together with GoodSAM, were asked by the NHS to deliver a national response to the crisis – the NHS Volunteer Responders. Here we saw hundreds of thousands of people step forward to join the programme. Together with our existing volunteers they have been there to support the most vulnerable people in our hospitals and communities. Their extraordinary support has saved lives, but there is still so much we need to do.
Through the uncertain times ahead we must continue to help those who need support with their physical and mental health and wellbeing. With your help, Royal Voluntary Service will continue to be a lifeline to people in communities and hospitals across Britain.
