A national volunteering campaign has been launched by the Scottish Government.

The ‘Scotland Cares’ campaign has been launched by the Scottish Government to encourage people to volunteer during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Those wanting to volunteer to support their communities have three options which are signposted from the Ready Scotland website:

  • returning NHS workers will be directed to existing voluntary arrangements in NHS Scotland
  • people wishing to offer their support to our public services, including the NHS and local authorities, will be directed to a site co-ordinated by the British Red Cross
  • those looking for opportunities with other charities or community groups in their area will be directed to Volunteer Scotland for information
