Safeguarding and Wellbeing of Volunteers

In light of the developing situation we want to keep our volunteers and communities safe. Clear guidance will be provided to all volunteers by volunteering organisations when volunteering commences. If you consider yourself to be in an at-risk group or are well but self-isolating or if your situation changes at any point please inform DMU Local team on: local@dmu.ac.uk. It may be that there are volunteering activities that can be undertaken with limited or no direct contact with others and that would still be gratefully received by those in need.

Next Steps

Thank you for signing up to volunteer, you will receive an email confirmation from the DMU Local team in the coming days.
