Bury VCFA are exploring ways in which the VCF sector and volunteers in Bury can support local health and social care.

There are two possible ways in which volunteers can assist

By assisting in carrying out non-personal care tasks to assist people with care and support needs. Such tasks might include

Shopping
Collecting prescriptions
Reassurance by phone

Having a current DBS would allow for a wider range of volunteering options.

The other way to help, is by residents/people looking out for their neighbours who may be in some way or another vulnerable but not in receipt of formal care support.

This might be about supporting people who choose to self-isolate.

This can include looking after an elderly neighbour.
