Volunteering and getting support during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

22 March 2020

Dorset Council would like to thank residents for their amazing community response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the Dorset Council area. 

To provide extra support where it may be needed, several key voluntary organisations have been mobilised to respond to the impact of the outbreak and support our local communities’ efforts.

Volunteering

If you are part of a community group which requires additional volunteer resource, or if you would like to volunteer but are unsure where to begin, then Volunteer Centre Dorset can assist with this. Registration links can be found on our Co-ordinated Community Response webpage.
